I changed my mind about the C++ part of this. g++ libstdc++ doesn't
accept c99 hex floats, so I propose to follow that, ensuring the same
things will be parsed and not parsed.
On that same aim of parsing or not parsing the same, I think I'll use
the istream locale isspace test, and remove various non-standard
places whitespace is accepted, and remove "@" for a float exponent
