Well, there are simple solutions that are currently available:

1. *csv2ofx*  http://github.com/mulicheng/csv2ofx/tree/master
2. http://www.mt2ofx.tk/
3. http://xl2qif.chez-alice.fr/calc2qif_en.php

All three will allow you to leverage both your spreadsheet features and
gnucash -- the best of both. It should be dead trivial to begin doing this.
I'm just embarking on doing it now.
