	IMHO this was a highly retrograde step that was taken. There is / was
no real problem with having a single formula compiler, in one place that
can parse lots of different types of formulae.

	It would be far more efficient and sensible IMHO to simply pass the
incoming formula as strings over to the core: what we used to do before
the brave-new-re-write to use masses of UNO ;-)
