OMG Regardless of whether we introduce this feature, .hex() is the way to show what's going on here:

>>> 0.1.hex()
'0x1.999999999999ap-4'
>>> 0.2.hex()
'0x1.999999999999ap-3'
>>> 0.3.hex()
'0x1.3333333333333p-2'
>>> (0.1+0.2).hex()
'0x1.3333333333334p-2'
>>>

This shows so clearly that there's 1 bit difference!
