Currently, the thousand separator for the numeric scalebar is hard coded to a space, i.e. "1:10 000". This style is uncommon in many parts of the world where it should be "1:10,000" or "1:10.000". I suggest adding an option to pick a separator character.

As pointed in the related issue, the thousand separator depends on your locale settings.
Isn't it working as expected?
I think the general policy is to avoid adding settings for everything. Here we have the opportunity to use locale settings, so no new option should be needed.

Imho, this is not satisfactory for the following reason: If I have a client/template which requires a certain format, do you expect me to always change my locale to try find a setting which produces the required formatting? That's not user-friendly at all. Also - if it really works that way - the user has no idea that the system locale affects this.
