My impression from previous discussions on the mailing list is that
this is by design:

printing of scalars and scalar arrays is handed off to python which
doesn't have a set_printoptions.
printing of arrays is under the control of numpy

I don't see a way to influence the __str__ or __repr__ of a python float.
