Boost has a "format" object (described here:

I'm not suggesting that this actual class should be used, but it's a
starting point for ideas. The Gtk::TreeView::append_column_numeric()
method could take an object that formats a number (perhaps with a number of 
simple/common ones supplied). I don't know how all this works underneath though, does it need to translate to printf format for the Gtk+ interface, or does all the formatting happen in the C++ wrapper?
