Digit grouping

Description

Ruby seems to have no way to format a number with grouped thousands. I see Rails
has an option:

require 'active_support/all'
1234.to_s(:delimited)

However in this case it seems that grouping cannot be combined with say, leading
zeros:

https://github.com/rails/rails/issues/36707

This is quite simple with other languages, for example JavaScript:

(1234).toLocaleString(0, {minimumIntegerDigits: 7});
"0,001,234"

Python:

>>> format(1234, '08,')
'0,001,234'

Go:

package main
import "golang.org/x/text/language"
import "golang.org/x/text/message"
func main() {
   message.NewPrinter(language.English).Printf("%07d\n", 1234)
   // 0,001,234
}
