I would simply like to note that this is not a universal choice, and
(in my mind) not the most sensible. Common output for this source
include:

01234567890123456789
********************

for Intel, MIPSpro, g95, and

01234567890123456789
              0.E+00

or

01234567890123456789
              0.D+00

or

01234567890123456789
               .E+00

for Portland, IBM and NEC (FORTRAN90/SX Version 2.0 for SX-5),
depending on the language (F77 or F90) selected.

But anyhow, what you propose is better than what we have, so I guess
this patch is OK.
