0.0 is printed with too many digits

Description (last modified by )
sage: RR(0).str(digits=3) '0.000'
This is trivial to fix, but then it causes hundreds of doctest failures since every real zero is printed with one less digit. To compensate for this, we add one extra digit for 0.0 in the default case.

It is a little annoying to have that one special case just to make this less of a patchbomb. However, we can always address that on a later ticket as it is the precedent.

On the other hand, do you really care whether it's 0.000000000000000
or 0.00000000000000
? What's important is that the number of digits is correct when you specifically ask for a given number of digits.
