Most definitely. The basic class, which represents pure numbers,
would use numpunct; and a more derived class representing amounts
of currency could, if I'm not mistaken, use money_get and money_put
directly because of the string_type& overloads of do_get and do_put.
(I'm a newbie to the C++ locale mechanism, so this is going to be
a good learning experience for me.)

I used a variety of C-style locales in a toy program using MSVC
a while ago...haven't tried C++ locales with it yet.
