Does that mean a localized postmaster returns the number with ',' instead of
'.'? Mine certainly doesn't. 

In fact I remove LC_NUMERIC for ECPG to make sure numbers have the '.' as
decimal seperator.

Could anyone tell me what standard says? Is it "14.7" as my postmaster gives
it to me even with LC_ALL=de_DE and --use-locale or is it "14,7" as the
German locale asks for (and I have a bug in my setup). If the later is
correct ECPG has to go back to the drawing board.
