      Description

      In OpenFormula, it's possible to do formula including a way to
      describe non-standard formula.

      It would be interesting to be able to add information about formula
      engines and values.

      What would be interesting is to be able to do is the following:
      Letting the formula's be calculated with a formula engine.
      Saving the cells values with a calculated value attribute and formula
      engine attribute.
      Calculate the formulas with another formula engine.
      Saving also the new values with a calculated value attribute and
      formula engine attribute.

      It needs something to preserve the calculated value of that cell and
      which formula engine that did it. Preferably in a way so that multiple
      values from multiple formula engines and versions can be stored
      parallel.

      To avoid problems, software should, without extra input, show the most
      recent results.

      A function to show the name of the formula engine currently used would
      be handy.
      Also a function to show a list of all formula engines (+version if
      applicable) with their values.

      This would be very handy to compare things from different formula
      engines in the future.

      Was inspired by the bottom of this blog post, where formula engines
      are mentioned:
