I agree with your motives, but as a scheme implementation is not required to
support floating point, I can't see adding such support here.
So what? A Scheme implementation isn't required to support format.
Besides, ~F isn't restricted to "floating point". It's obviously
useful for "fixed point" as well ... or generally any Scheme
implementation that supports non-integer reals, exact or in-exact.
I think an "intermediate format" that doesn't support "~8,2F" is
missing the boat.
