Hey, its not my solution, it's Google's :)

I'm just trying to be lazy.

I see your point, that Google may change the API and my code breaks.
Although I'm guessing they'd make lots'o'people mad if they changed
the API at this point since it seems like their intent is to let you
use their google spreadsheet or implement your own datasource.

I think I need to play around with it some more.
