This is not a nice name (format is generic; cardinal is not a class) for a
nice function, which I would like in several places in R code and therefore
would like to become part of R  (under a better name !)

format.cardinal <- function(i, sep="")
        paste(i, c("st","nd","rd","th")[pmin(4,i)], sep=sep)
