[Python-Dev] Shorter float repr in Python 3.1?

Mark has uploaded our newest work to Rietveld, again at 
http://codereview.appspot.com/33084/show. Since the last version, Mark 
has added 387 support (and other fixes) and I've added localized 
formatting ('n') back in as well as ',' formatting for float and int. I 
think this addresses all open issues. If you have time, please review 
the code on Rietveld.

We believe we're ready to merge this back into the py3k branch. Pending 
any comments here or on Rietveld, we'll do the merge in the next day or so.

Before then, if anyone could build and test the py3k-short-float-repr 
branch on any of the following machines, that would be great:

Windows (preferably 64-bit)
Old Intel/Linux (e.g., the snakebite nitrogen box)
Something bigendian, like a G4 Mac

We're pretty well tested on x86 Mac and Linux, and I've run it once on 
my Windows 32-bit machine.

I have a Snakebite account, and I'll try running on nitrogen once I 
figure out how to log in again.

I just had Itanium and PPC buildbots test our branch, and they both 
succeeded (or at least failed with errors not related to our changes).
