My use case is that I convert a .csv file to an Excel file and need to
set the cell number format to that found in the .csv file, namely,
FIXED, SCIENTIFIC, or GENERAL.
There is a FormatNumber class that contains a number with formatting
meta data. The contents of the meta data depend upon what part of the
number parsing succeeds or fails. I.e., if there is an 'e' or 'E', then
it's SCIENTIFIC. If there is a '.', then it may be in fixed format, etc.
