Belike everyone is tired of hearing this sort of thing, but there is a
nifty app (TexTables.app) which is a part of the InstantTeX package for
NeXTstep which allows one to visually / interactively lay out a table
and then generate either Plain TeX, or LaTeX code to render the table.

The ideal here for Mac OS X would be an app which provides a Service
entrypoint for the formatting. Anyone know if any of the Mac OS X
spreadsheets do Services of any sort? Any that export to TeX?
