In today's spreadsheets if you want to crunch a lot of data, you usually put the data in rows and put expressions in cells to the right of the data and repeat those cells for every row of the data. I would like to create a spreadsheet system that can process the same quantity of data but only has the a single instance of those cells with expressions. In other words, I do expect that that the same expressions get used over and over with the same data, perhaps thousands (or more) times.

LLVM would be a good fit for a Lotus Improv / Qantrix Modeller style spreadsheet.
