Wow, thanks, Mark!

I'm generally in favor. The selling points to me are that it needs to happen post-rounding, and the C++ discussion. It would be better if this were already accepted in C++. I'll note that the paper is proposing a 'z' modifier to the sign, so I guess for us that would translate to: [sign[optional-z]] instead of just sign. I'd have to noodle through the differences between that the proposed [sign][~]. I guess this would all be worked out in a PEP.

My only reservation is Mark's comment:  """For Decimal, we'd need to "own" the string formatting, taking that responsibility away from mpdecimal, but there are already other reasons to do that."""

If Mark is okay with that (right back at you, Mark!), then I think a PEP is the next step. It doesn't need to be huge, sort of like PEP 378.
