humanize filter `intcomma` should be renamed to `numcomma`

The current filter name doesn't give it justice (it also comma separates floats).

Backwards compatibility is easy, and it'd be good to provide a documentation example of it handling a float.

#3017 was the inspiration for this ticket.

I'm not necessarily against renaming the filter, but I don't think commaseparate is a great name because of the tendency for people to misspell "separate". Reopen with another name if you can think of one.

At this point in Django's life, I'm not sure I see the value in changing the name. It might not be the most accurate name in the world, but it isn't fundamentally broken, and changing it would require a whole bunch of deprecation/backwards compatibility dancing for what is, at the end of the day, not a whole lot of gain.

If the name change was required in the context of some clarification of what intcomma actually does, I might be convinced, but if were doing it just for the sake of theoretical purity, I think we can pass.
