[snip...] Discussion points =================
(1) Any objections to including this into py3k? If there's controversy, then I guess we'll need a PEP.
(2) Should other Python implementations (Jython, IronPython, etc.) be expected to use short float repr, or should it just be considered an implementation detail of CPython? I propose the latter, except that all implementations should be required to satisfy eval(repr(x)) == x for finite floats x.
Short float repr should be an implementation detail, so long as eval(repr(x)) == x still holds.
What he said :-) Paul.
