probably the discussion on [804]

to recap:
katja's original double-precision fixes (on which the current 
double-precision support is based) used different formats for displaying 
(and saving) numbers, based on whether you were using double precision 
or not.
i intentionally left this format magic out (because it also had 
undesired side-effects).

i agree that we need two different atom2string converters for those two 
it would also solve the problem with spaces-in-symbols [824].

i've opened a feature-request [1310]
