A couple of thoughts:

* It is okay to add a couple lines to the decimal module docs noting a Cpython specific implementation detail that it uses better than expected algorithms which can payoff nicely when used with very large numbers.

* Mersenne prime examples and whatnot belong external to our docs.  I usually put my recipes and examples on the ASPN Python Cookbook.  http://code.activestate.com/recipes/langs/python/
