Okay, it's moved.

Will write up a PEP, do research on what  other languages 
do and collect everyone's ideas on what to put in the shed.
(hundreds and ten thousands grouping, various choices of 
decimal points, mayan number systems and whatnot).  Will
start with Nick's simple proposal as a starting point.
