I don't know if there is already a way of doing this, but I attached a
simple hack that lets you read commas as decimal points by executing
something like this:

(DecimalCommaNumberParser on: '3,14') nextNumber -> 3.14

I know this is not elegant, but it works. There seems to be some other
places where the decimal point is hardcoded. Maybe we should make
SqNumberParser take the decimal point as a parameter. Or have a preference
to choose that. I don't know...
