To my surprise, I found this was missing.  A negative number in a list of
currency values should optionally be formatted without sign, but with
parentheses delimiting the number.  This is standard for some accounting uses. 
The displayed values may be black or red.

An early fix would be nice, but this is an optional format.  It will enhance the
product in the eyes of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles users.

I think the requests for a "accountancy number format" should be collected in
one issue. Therefore I set this as duplicate to issue 15756.
