Original issue. https://github.com/msgpack/msgpack-python/issues/497
_PyFloat_(Pack|Unpack)(4|8) is very nice API for serializers like msgpack.
Converting double and float into char is not trivial and these APIs do it in very efficient way.
And these APIs don't reveal CPython internal strucutre. It just convert double and float into char.
So please keep these APIs public for libraries like msgpack.
