[Seaside] Generate Excel documents from Seaside (Pharo)

FWIW, I do this by renaming the CSV to XLS.

If you open a CSV in Excel it asks you about parsing and blah-blah-blah,
which you don't want if you're sending it to execs who can't be bothered
with clicking the default buttons a few times.

If you give a CSV an XLS extension, Excel just opens it without complaint
using the default parsing.

That's how I've handled it. Beats messing with some conversion program.
