Hello,

In a recent commit, I've modified `org-table-number-regexp' so it can
recognize numbers with a comma as the decimal mark by default.

The variable is almost exclusively used for column alignment in tables,
so it should be a cosmetic change only. Though, do not hesitate to
report any suspicious behaviour in tables (when working with csv for
example).

Also, remember that `org-table-number-regexp' is customizable, so you
can undo this change locally.


Regards,

This should really follow the definitions in the locale...

That was my first reaction to it as well.  

But then Org is no office suite.  It's more of a SOHO suite.

Remember the purpose of `org-table-number-regexp' is to help find the
right alignment in tables.  It is _not_ to find numbers when eval'ing
a formula.

So, having both a rigid definition of what is a number for formulas
and a flexible definition when it comes to formatting tables is fine.
