OO.o Calc

Can calc now display the equation of an interpolation on a graph? It really drives me nuts booting OSX just to use Excel for such a stupid function.

It's been awhile since I've had to display the equation of an interpolation on a graph, but I remember also being frustrated by Calc's failure to provide an easy way to do that. There's a sort of workaround for it: http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=3155&highlight=powe...
But this should be a prominent, easy to use feature- even a high school math/science student would probably abandon Calc if he needed this feature, even more so a professional engineer or scientist. According to the 2.1 release notes, apparently this hasn't been addressed.
