comma is locale dependant.

some languages use ',' as thousands separator and '.' as decimal separator
others use '.' for thousands separator, and comma as decimal separator.

Yet others (like Hungarian) use space for thousands separator and comma for decimals.

This is a big can of worms and I think it would be quite problematic when the input is a comma separated list of numbers.
I'd rather allow a @REGEXP@ parser instead, which when used deeply in the pattern may be good enough performance wise.
