Just to be clear: this enhancement was proposed for XY charts. The "box and
whiskers plots" might be added in the same time (or not, I don't know).
I'm not a statistics specialist. However, as I understand it, nothing has to be
calculated since the user will (in the most general case) provide all the
values (cells) required for "box and whiskers plots".
