What I mean by that is that not infrequently, I'll run the same query
several times and then want to average the results.  That's easy with awk
or similar scripts as long as the numbers are in straight decimal.

I don't mind if we provide a way to print in Babylonian-inspired
notation(s) as well, but I'm going to be seriously annoyed if that's
the only way to get the output.
