New version of decimal_n_format.patch, with support for the thousands 
separator (PEP 378).  As discussed on python-dev, during zero-padding the 
patched code adds an extra '0' on the left to avoid a leading ',' if 
necessary.  For example:

>>> format(Decimal('123456'), '08,')

The Decimal.__format__ method (and support code) had to be fairly 
significantly reworked.  However, I'm reasonably confident that this code 
is correct:  a patch review would be welcome if anyone has the time;  
otherwise I'll commit this in a couple of days or so.
