127 means "no-more-grouping", so Python behaves as instructed by the OS.

As you see, the OS prescribes 1.345.677,222 for *monetary* quantities
and 1345677,222 otherwise.

According to  http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/DIN_1333 , for non monetary
quantities DIN-1333 says *empty spaces* *may* be used as separators.
DIN-5008 says they *should* be used. :)


Most operating systems use [3, 3, 0] also for de_DE 'grouping', but
given the unclear situation it's hard to claim a bug in OSX.


The only way out of this would be to introduce a new 'm' locale specifier
that uses mon_grouping.
