This feature has been implemented in the "new" gui interface (available in the pspp-sheet branch). The idea is that this will become the default implementation (hopefully not too far off now).
In the meantime, you might like to try that and give us your opinion.

I would like to remember, that this is the very first thing,
that disturbs SPSS user.

I suggest that it should be quiet simply to implement. Doesn't it?

It is very first fact, we found at starting work with PSPPIRE. Should be fixed.
It shoud try to detect the type of entered data: if this is not "Numberic", assign variable type to "String".
