OK, _dump postscript_ was exactly the route I was thinking too.  Using the
spreadsheet method doesn't seem to be working since I've yet to produce
any printed output when attempting to print empty cells.  I've been
through all the OO settings 6 or 7 times, but I'm still probably printing
something obivous...  If anybody has any advice there, let me know.

Either way, a little shell script really is what I was going for.
