some tasks from the last year's GSoC project are still open. And since we recently discussed variants to the table styles in the design group, I wonder why not simply switch from the binary format to xml (tdf#107560). There should be a read and write method, below /// Read an AutoFormatSwBlob from stream in autoform.cxx and tblafmt.cxx I guess, but you (?) wrote a big red notice that changes MUST be binary. Don't get why, and maybe you can give me some code pointers for an easyhack (or rather convince me from not starting this work *g*).
Actually this is also request for life sign since you abandoned your last patch some time ago. Everything okay with you?
All the best,
