The original ticket points out that most systems generate 1e+00, while windows generates 1e+000.
Parrot needs to decide on a standard (regardless of OS) and stick with it.
I'll throw out there that we should consider dropping all leading zeros for exponents, using 1e+0 for the given example.
There was never consensus on the original ticket to decide even between the first two options.
