Subject: SimpleDB formatting
It would be neat to have support for padding and offsets for when we are dealing with data with Amazon's SimpleDB:

http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AmazonSimpleDB/2009-04-15/DeveloperGuide/NumericalData.html

Perhaps:

format_simpledb( $number, $padding, $offset )

Just an idea... :)

format_picture should handle the padding, and just add a constant number to do the offset. If you want to implement such a method I will be happy to consider your patch.

Suffice it to say, after 16 months, I've moved on. ;) Thanks!
