Added the requires decorator as requested.
Committed in r79602.  Will backport to 2.7 this weekend.

And yes, I agree that Fraction(somedecimal) should work too.  It would be weird to have Fraction("1.1") work but not Fraction(Decimal("1.1")).

Mark, I do think we should have decimal+float-->float in 2.7 also.  I don't see any reason to have the two versions diverge on this issue.
