Trivial but useful: Commas for numbers.

Just as it said on the tin.   Having the various stats in the game use commas would make them more readable.

If implemented, this should be moddable for the benefit of translation packs. Different languages use different number place separators.

How about in init.txt? [NUMBER_PLACE_SEPARATOR:<character code>] or something like that.

Anyways, +1.

A thousand divider would indeed be a wonderful addition.
A comma works rather fine. I myself prefer using a blank space. (Mainly since I am from Sweden and it's the national standard here.)
So having it configurable in the init file would be wonderful.
