Are those functions implemented?

As I pointed out in other thread, I implemented integral2str but
it converts according to "C" locale. I'm going to add thousands_sep
after every group of 3 digits for locales with appropriate grouping.
I expect a slight performance degradation but it should be much
faster then ostringstream anyway.
As I don't know anything about locales with other grouping, I can't
say how efficient integral2str might be for those locales.
