Summary0014800: No consistency for Catalyst generated scripts and state files with regards to floating point number formatting
DescriptionBob Kares sent an email with:

Why is there no consistency in the output format used for numbers that appear in the Catalyst generated .py script? For example, one of my palettes uses a data range -2e+10 to 2e+10. When I look at what the Catalyst plugin generates by default, the CreatePiecewiseFunction line generated by the Catalyst plugin has -20000000000 and 20000000000. Sometimes "e" format is used instead, but I can’t really discern what the rule is.

This same problem occurs in the state files ParaView writes out. This is
more than a cosmetic issues because it makes data values you know are
there hard to find with a text editor.
