[Matrix-SIG] Simple Suggestion for extending Numeric: Max/Min constants

Because Numeric deals primarily with well-defined floating point and
integer types, I suggest that symbolic constants for MinFloat, MaxFloat,
MinDouble, MaxDouble, etc., be added in some "portable" way;
perhaps as a Python package under Numeric, e.g., Numeric.limits.
