Are plywood floors
a good choice for our kitchen?

Does anyone have experience with day to day living with plywood floors and are they a viable option for a kitchen floor? We've been looking into various floorings, and have ruled out ceramic and quarry tile; we have ceramic now, and trying to keep the grout clean is such a pita, plus I'm sick of the look of tile. The rest of our house is hardwood, which I love. We've ruled out bamboo because of the softness. I've seen a few photos of various plywood floor installations lately and love the look, especially cut into staggered width planks like the one I linked to. Ease of cleaning and maintenance is key this time - more important than looks, although that runs a close second. We currently have no pets and no small kids. Not really a fan of vinyl or linoleum of any kind. Is plywood a good choice? With finishing and sealing, will it hold up to the occasional wet spill? Is there another type of floor should we be considering?
Those vinyl laminates that look like wood are not an option.
