Add info about Jumbo sheets status into About dialog
Today Jumbo sheets is experimental feature, but users can enable it anyway and then they can get any problems.
I suggest add info about Jumbo sheets status into About dialog in bottom row like:
Calc: CL, VLT enabled/disabled (or Jumbo on/off)
more for QA people.
When it very cool function will be more stable we'll can delete that info from About dialog
Steps to Reproduce:
if user enabled a Jumbo sheets function, then QA don't see it from About dialog info
if user enabled a Jumbo sheets function, then QA see it from About dialog info at once
User Profile Reset: No

Possibly we need a new line on that dialog, something like:
Experimental Features: xx, yy, zzz
to make it obvious that some experimental features are enabled, and which ones

Do we actually have a list of current experimental features? IIUC we only have a flag allowing all the features, and each dev checks it in places where their features decide if they should work or not?
There is a flag for jumbo sheets, but possibly not other experimental features

Ah! Good to know. Slightly inconsistent (usually experimental features are enabled on Options->[ProductName]->Advanced->[x] Enable experimental features (may be unstable)), but definitely provides necessary fine-tune control for this most experimental of all experimental features :-)
Please don't add more things to the UI.
The copy button / HandleClick method compiles its own text and takes data per GetMiscString(); we could the Jumbo info there. But of course some kind of GetExperimental() below would be easier to spot. I like this idea.
aCalcMode += "threaded";
if (!aCalcMode.endsWith(" "))
aCalcMode += " ";
aCalcMode += "Jumbo";
(this shows for example "Calc: threaded Jumbo", if enabled)
