Awhile ago, in response to a cookbook question, I wrote most of a small
number-formatting library, but wanted to rethink the API, so I never
polished up the code for release.  Should I add this back on my TODO

(load "numberformat.scm")

(define display-number-my-way
  ;; Most of these are defaults that could be left out.
   '((sign                   minus)
     (prefix                 #f)
     (pad-whole-char         #f)
     (pad-whole-length       #f)
     (whole-spacers-char     #\,)
     (whole-spacers-interval 3)
     (decimal-point          #\.)
     (max-fractional-length  4)
     (pad-fractional-char    #\0)
     (pad-fractional-length  #f)
     (suffix                 #f))))

(display-number-my-way -87654321.69696969)
