That + deprecate the old separate ones and updated user changes trunk?  I'll
do this today when I have time.

Then the only question is if we should deprecate defaultformatsettings. I
decided to not do this today.  Even if we do this, a lot of parameters for
the overloaded "formatsettings" routines need to be renamed (to
aformatsettings?) for this first to avoid accidental clashes.
