Import ancient Quattro Pro files on linux

I had occasion to need to open a Quattro Pro spreadsheet file from 1999 today. OpenOffice did not know what to do with it, but then I remembered Gnumeric. It worked like a charm! This file was so old, the extension is *.wb3. Now I can get the old data into R!

FYI, this was on current Debian stable.
