That's what I'm in the middle of right now.

Ok, this would really be great. Besides the speed issue (which is
substantial) there are also correctness issues on platforms with
non-stable setlocale (ie AIX). So, this is a big deal.

Paolo, if you are going to work on this can you coordinate with Jerry?

The other thing for formatted input/output are the sentries, which I'm
sure you've noticed taking about 10% in the various performance
testsuite files. We can work on that later though.

Ditto! :) This is a great idea, we just need to coordinate the
tricky template-fu required with what the optimizers expect.
