in reply to non-OLE reading and writing Excel/OpenOffice comments?

Yes. To write comments, you could use write_comment() from Spreadsheet::WriteExcel or Spreadsheet::WriteExcelXML as appropriate for the file type (assuming the usual xls or xlsx).

Read the docs for details. With these, you should be able to find modules/functions to read comments as well. Of course, other modules may be better suited for your task but these should get you started.
