I'd suggested some time ago that money should be rewritten as a thin
wrapper around numeric: it wouldn't have to do much except substitute
new I/O functions, and perhaps find a way to set the default scale
to match whatever is the customary number of monetary decimal places
in the current locale.  I think this is already on the TODO list.
