Bug description:  formatting numbers

It would be extremely helpful to be able to do more formatting of numbers
than is currently available.  
Specifically, it would be good if number_format would prepend a dollar sign
or allow negative numbers to be shown in brackets rather than with a
negative sign.  Both of these are necessary for accounting applications.

My current solution for negative currency looks like this: 
  if ( $value < 0 )
    $value = "(\$".number_format(abs($value),2).")";
which works but is less than ideal.  For one thing, it makes later use of
the number difficult.
