Bear in mind that the use of commas is very much a
local thing. In some parts of the world periods are used
and a comma indicates a decimal point so
could be 123 thousand 456 or 123 point 456 depending
on where the reader is from.
If that is important you might need to investigate a locale specific
way of defining the seperator. I know Windows has hooks to get
it from the local settings but I'm not sure about *nix and I don't
know if Python has a generic way.
This might not matter to you in practice , but I thought I'd
mention it just in case...
