      So - really, the changes need to be re-integrated into the main excel

virtualized at that level anyway.

Actually, Nick discussed it before redoing things this way and I'd
rather it stay distinct.  The XL plugin is critical enough that
destabilizing it with an infrequent code path seems a bad bet.
Utility routines should be shared as much as possible, but
individual record parsers for the older records are generally fairly
different so there is no major gain.
