Description
Please add a new format specifier, similar with "n" but that works for integer type arguments so we don't have to type-cast or write our own routines.

For floating point types we have: e, f, g, n, m
For integer types we only have: d and u

I believe K (see description) would make a great addition, plus, we have this stuff unchanged since what, Turbo Pascal 4, 5?

Please add K. Thank you very much.
Steps to Reproduce:
If, supposedly this new specifier would be "k", its type description (as listed in the help file) would be:

k

Number. The argument must be an integer value. The value is converted to a string of the form "-d,ddd,ddd.ddd...". The "k" format corresponds to the "f" format, except that the resulting string contains thousand separators and no decimals.
