Ah, I see, \placecombinedlist uses the value of numberseparator active
at the time it is called! Thanks.

I had experimented with that, and it certainly works (I chose the second
option, but dropped the \enspace), BUT... the page numbers column in the
test file below, and if you run that you can see that things have gone
squiggly. The frontmatter and appendices are aligned further to the
right than the chapters and backmatter. Weird.

I looked at the source and as far as I can tell the default pagecommand
is just \strut#1, so I don't understand how alignment has been changed
by redefining it, but it certainly seems to have.

Will do; would be great to fix (or at least understand) the alignment
before I do though, for completeness. :-)

Thanks,

Minimal test, now mostly working thanks to Hans:
