I'm not against #2, but I'm not particularly for it either. In any case,
once you've converted your float to Decimal it's trivial to round it to
whatever precision you feel like, so #2 seems unnecessary to me. -0.0.
I am -1.100000000000000088817841970012523233890533447265625 on any
implementation of from_float (with or without keywords, defaults, etc.)
for which Decimal.from_float(1.1) gives Decimal('1.1').
