Would probably also work, I'd like to here from Michael if he finds this
ok. But aren't there any other properties like the number of digits
after the decimal point that should then also change? In the end it
seems like a rather arbitrary choice in which direction the properties
are copied over.

(if you really don't like any of this, or want more time to think about
this, I can revert the patch for now and reopen the bugzilla entry)
