This sounds good to me.  I assume a '+' would still affect
the sign of the real part?

I don't see any problem with dealing with width, alignment
and padding with a user-specified fill character;  I think we
should keep these if possible.  It's just zero padding where
it's not clear what should happen.

For the bits that are disabled (e.g., zero padding), should
there be a ValueError raised, or do those bits just get
silently ignored?
