RE:mouse clicking multiple cells-highlighting multiple cells

Actually, as far as SpreadSheet.selectCell is concerned, I suggest
just eliminating my double for loop, in preference to a single
setSelected call on the appropriate cell.

That is, the entire purpose of my double for loop was to *deselect*
the old selected cell.  And yes, it's an inefficient implementation,
but I wasn't worried because even with 100 spreadsheet cells it's
still plenty fast enough.

Of course, you'll then need to add some sort of logic for deselecting
cells that are clicked, but already selected. Perhaps add a
FancySSCell.isSelected method, then call it from SpreadSheet.selectCell
to determine whether to select or deselect the newly clicked cell.
