Actually, I think '+nan' for format(float('nan'), '+'), and ' nan'
for format(float('nan'), ' ').  Then nans and infs can be treated 
identically, except that the sign of a nan is always considered to be 
positive, regardless of what the _Py_dg_dtoa function returns.

Should do the same thing for nans and infs here.  But certainly leading 
zeros should be avoided.  Leading spaces sounds fine to me.
