It doesn't make sense for SET FORMAT to control the frequency count format, because the default for SET FORMAT is F8.2 but frequency counts are usually integers.

It is possible to control the format for the frequencies by weighting the active file, then setting the format for the weight variable.

My current thinking is that this would be an appropriate place to use the "stretchy" data formatting function described in bug #35829 (but not yet implemented).

I believe that this should be controllable with SET FORMAT or by changing the format of the weight variable, but lavila reports that this does not work (in PSPP 0.7.5).
