Since there is no still no patch, this is my lightweight composer patch,
that works on Unix-like only, due to the "sed" dependency

  "scripts": {
    "post-install-cmd" : [
      "sed -i '2490s/&$string/$header.$data/'

Added #patch

Instead of a patch, why not release a new version of this package to the
PEAR repo?

I can tell you that there are probably a TON of people using this
package, and if it suddenly break (we're talking ALL kinds of websites)
upon PHP upgrade (which happens automatically in many environments), it
will be a disaster.  An unnecessary disaster, easily prevented by the
Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer pushing out a new release with the patch

It's just the right thing to do.  Let's get it done and move on.

isn't the patch attached to bug #19359 more adequate ?

The patch works perfectly for me

A new release with it would be nice
