Hi! I've been learning about the spreadsheet features of org-table and how
to use them with org-babel. They're both really cool and I was happy to be
able to convert a Gnumeric spreadsheet into something that I can keep in
version control.

Now I have a document that consists of mutually-referential tables and
source blocks. So, for example, I have table A, then table B which refers
to table A, then source block C which accesses table B using a noweb
reference, and finally table D which uses the output of source block C in
its formulas.

I want to be able to change the "inputs" in table A and see the updates in
table D. So far the easiest way I have found to do this is to use
`org-table-recalculate-buffer-tables`, then `org-babel-execute-buffer`,
then `org-table-recalculate-buffer-tables` again. I already made at least
one mistake by rerunning the source block without remembering to refresh
intermediate tables. I was wondering if there is another way, either
simpler or more robust?

Thanks!

Ethan
