I very regularly do something similar in various apps, though I often
want to specify the exponent (e.g. I always want to print a given
value in "mega" scaling even if that ends up as 0.090e3 or 1000.010e3.
So I would suggest adding an optional "exponent" value such that "%3n"
would always result in <whatever>e+03
