That is the coolest thing ever!  How did I not know about that?!?

I went cross-eyed trying to read it on my Mini9 screen, and even on a 
real screen it's tough.  I printed the PDF landscape (letter, it 
recommends legal) and I can read it OK--with a microscope.  BUT, it 
copies and pastes into OO.o Calc beautifully and with a bit of trivial 
formatting, works great!  You can hide columns for OS's you don't care 
about (or hate *cough* SCO :), re-order them, etc.  There's a really 
annoying "rows/columns to repeat" printing bug in OO.o calc though, see 
this for the fix:
