You make it sound like it's one evening's work, but what I want would
take a lot more than that.  Besides everything I already said, I want
something that looks and feels like a standard spreadsheet, with a
cell-cursor, arrow and page movement, resizable columns, etc.

I would feel compelled to develop a custom SpreadsheetMorph with its
own layout and drawOn: to accomplish this..
