> Commit 229afea64e77c2dba9eec62b2c339e9fc92c9ec7 caused all inputs recognisable as numbers
to be formatted with at least one decimal place. This includes all integers, which is frequently
undesirable, particularly if they were meant to be, eg:
> - identifiers, not for arithmetic;
> - strictly validated against an XML schema that does not allow for floating-point numbers;
> - subject to length limitations;
> - etc
> This apparently occurs because all inputs that look like numbers, regardless of format,
are of type {{BigDecimal}} by the time they reach the {{StringConverter}}.
> For our applications, this is a blocker; is it working differently for others? We don't
have any special handling of input types.
