Thanks, Stefan. The cdecimal and decnumber behaviour sounds like the ideal one to me.
I'm not sure how easy it would be to adopt this behaviour for decimal: it could require some significant rewriting, so we may have to leave decimal as it is and call the flag situation undefined.
I'll take a proper look sometime (soon, I hope); Decimal._fix is the main place that's going to need fixes. The hard part is tracking down all the other places where a signal is raised.
