The Jython/POI combination is indeed my favourite way of dealing with 
Excel, BUT somehow reading Excel files 500KB and larger takes an 
incredible amount of time (f.ex reading a document about 600Kb makes me 
sit and wait for several minutes).

Any idea why the POI takes such a long time to read relatively small 
Excel files (it's not Jython's fault, I tested the POI classes in Ant, 
and same thing there).
