 * When working with the EventUserModel, if you want to
 *  process formulas, you need an instance of
 *  {@link InternalWorkbook} to pass to a {@link HSSFWorkbook},
 *  to finally give to {@link HSSFFormulaParser},
 *  and this will build you stub ones.
 * Since you're working with the EventUserModel, you
 *  wouldn't want to get a full {@link InternalWorkbook} and
 *  {@link HSSFWorkbook}, as they would eat too much memory.
 *  Instead, you should collect a few key records as they
 *  go past, then call this once you have them to build a
 *  stub {@link InternalWorkbook}, and from that a stub
 *  {@link HSSFWorkbook}, to use with the {@link HSSFFormulaParser}.
 * The records you should collect are:
 *  * {@link ExternSheetRecord}
 *  * {@link BoundSheetRecord}
 * You should probably also collect {@link SSTRecord},
 *  but it's not required to pass this in.
 * To help, this class includes a HSSFListener wrapper
 *  that will do the collecting for you.
