Ok, I know we don't normally remove functions, we deprecate them, but I'd like to vote for this function to be removed or deprecated. For some reason, we didn't modify toBinary() to do this. Well, maybe it does, but the docs only mention PDF objects, not spreadsheet objects. So at minimum, we should:

a) Ensure toBinary works on it, on heck, ANY binary thing we support, like images for example. (just checked, we have imagegetblob, so I'm guessing that should be removed/deprecated too).
b) Document it in toBinary
c) Deprecate this function.

Agree. This should have been done as part of ToBinary(). We will do that and deprecate SpreadsheetReadBinary().
