I've been looking to see if I can find the locale's rounding rules - I can't.
Would be useful if anyone knows where they are defined.
As far as I can find (pages similar to
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/manpage?7+locale), the locale data
doesn't seem to include the rounding rules. Sure, the number of DP,
grouping, etc. Yes. But no rounding.
So, does this just truncate?
