The docstring for the decimal module says in part:
This is a Py2.3 implementation of decimal floating point arithmetic based on
the General Decimal Arithmetic Specification:
Is it intended to remain 2.3-compatible for the forseeable future? It's not
mentioned in PEP 291, nor is there any discussion of portability to 2.3 in
I ask because we're at 2.3.4 at work, but could use it today. I'd hate to
have to track it to backport fixes though. It would be ideal if I could
simply copy the 2.4 version as it matures.
