Just a thought ... 

Maybe append_column_numeric() could just use the set_cell_data_func() with
some kind of functor, of which gtkmm could provide a couple ... something
on the order of:

use could read something on the order of:

  append_column_numeric(modelcolumn, Gtk::FixedDecimals(3));

for three significant digits and

  append_column_numeric(modelcolumn, User::DerivedFormat(anything, they_need, to_format));

I haven't looked at or used any of it ... just spouting out what
first comes to mind when reading your description and question ...
