NAK --- if you're trying to do arithmetic on the numbers, converting

I'm not quite sure what you mean by wanting to do arithmetic on the
numbers. My phrasing of the problem is that after a long query, you
might get output like this:
Time: 1234567.666 ms
which is pretty useless.
So I would like to have a format that is a bit more sensitive to the
scale of the numbers. And I would like that by default, because I don't
really want to have to fiddle with the format and then have to re-run
the long query. (Then I'd just do the division by 3600 or whatever
myself, and we haven't really improved usability.)
I'm not wedded to any particular format, but I think we can come up with
one that works in most situations.
