Quick, Dirty ODS reader

I discovered, to my great sadness, that reading an Microsoft XML spreadsheet in Python appeared to be easier the Open Document equivalent. There are plans to make a fully-functional Open Document library, but they seem to be minimal, and a few other libraries but nothing did what I want.

This is my attempt at a simple ODS parser, which attempts to read in the numerical values (as opposed to say =) which I use now, so that I can store experimental data in ODS instead of CSV files.

Much tidier.
