This is almost trivial: use a PasteUpMorph with grid layout, plus a 
method telling which submorph is located at a specific coordinate, and 
you have it. The drag and drop stuff can be implemented by populating 
the spreadsheet with initial empty cell which, upon a drop event, 
becomeForward: the dropped morph (possibly resizing it); I have done 
this in muO's musical graph system.
