[New-bugs-announce] [issue14127] os.stat and os.utime: allow preserving exact metadata

New submission from Larry Hastings <larry at hastings.org>:

Following on from Guido's rejection of PEP 410:

This bug is the proposed hammering-out space for how to preserve exact metadata for st_atime / st_mtime between os.stat and os.utime.

(Yes, there's already #11457 -- but that went pretty far down the rabbit hole of Decimal.  I thought maybe a fresh start would be best.)
