Re: [Numbers] Re: [...] NUMBERS-68: parse() [...]

I would prefer to conform toString() to the current formats accepted by
parse() .

The toString() method separates the real and imaginary components by
commas. Separating numbers by commas strikes me as dangerous given that the
input expressions to be parsed may also contain commas within the numbers.
The format "x + yi" strikes me as satisfyingly unambiguous.
