In the case of the ADF output (which BTW is relevant only if option
"show detailed regression output" is chosen) copying in RTF is already
there it seems. -- Well actually testing this on Linux with OpenOffice
doesn't really work; right now I cannot test on Windows and/or MSOffice.

Don't know about the other potential cases.

Apart from that I absolutely understand that doing tables in Latex is a
most annoying thing. That's why it would be welcome if gretl did it
instead of the user :-)

Maybe the way to go forward would be to use a different table format
altogether, say HTML? It's open, it's platform-independent, and since
the world is moving in the direction of web technologies, there are lots
of tools for that. Just a thought.
