| Wonderful. I sign up to implement this. It will be a fun exercise.
Just as pointer -- check what POSIX and Windows have as
properties for their currencies settings. AFAICR, there are
quite a bit more than you summarized. For example, I'm missing:
- number of decimal places to the left for separating thousands
(yes, there are really currencies out there where you split
off *four* digits)
- what to use as decimal point and what as thousand separator
(in Europe, it's "," and ".")
- where to put the currency sign (before or after the number)
Probably quite a few unusual corner cases more, check it out...
