Guido van Rossum added the comment:
I'd be willing to require eval(repr(x)) == x only for platforms whose
float input routine is correctly rounding. That would make the current
patch acceptable I believe -- but I believe you think there's a better
way in that case too? What way is that?
Also, I'd rather not lock out non-IEEE-754 platforms, but I'm OK with
dropping the above roundtripping invariant there.
