     OK.  I'll move it and rename it, and possibly rename
     fmt_date_template as well, to clarify everything.
OK.  Thanks.  The "." and "," in this function needs to be substituted
by the appropriate character (from SET /DECIMAL). 

     If I also generalize dollar_format_template to cover any format,
     as part of moving and renaming it, will you find it to be more
     useful?  I am willing to do so, but only if it is worthwhile.

I can't imagine any place where it would be used.  So it's probably
not worthwhile doing at this stage.  Thanks.
