     By the latter, do you mean something that could have the
     functionality of DATA LIST (or a subset of it)?  I suppose we
     should look at how spreadsheet programs usually do import of text
     data, and then try to do something at least as good.  Or, if SPSS
     has a good approach for this (haven't looked), we could try to
     imitate it.

This sounds like we should implement GET DATA /TYPE=txt and the
corresponding "wizard" (druid in GTK+ lingo).  I don't think there's
any major issues preventing us from doing that.
