Shouldn't this be on python-ideas?
I found previous discussions about "Decimal in C" on python-dev, that's why used this list.
This list is to contain discussion of speculative language ideas for Python for possible inclusion into the language. If an idea gains traction it can then be discussed and honed to the point of becoming a solid proposal to put to either python-dev or python-3000 as appropriate.
I guess it's a fine line...and matter of opinion. No worries.
In this case it isn't a language idea under discussion, but the possible inclusion of an implementation of an idea (and moreover an idea that is already included in Python in another, less efficient, form).
(I'm expecting that both Mark Dickinson and Raymond Hettinger will comment on this thread eventually...)
