I believe you are correct. frac_digits() is intended to represently
*exactly* the number of digits after the decimal point. One could of
course have frac_digits() return 0 if that is what one wants.
To the best of knowledge, the std::money facets don't do the showpoint
dance that you can do with the numeric facets.
