each unicode character has an optional "numeric value",
which may be a fractional value.
the unicodedata module provides a "numeric" function,
which returns a Python float representing this fraction.
this is currently implemented by a large switch stmnt,
containing entries like:
return (double) 1 / 6;
if I replace the numbers here with integer variables (read
from the character type table) and return the result to
Python, will str(result) be the same thing as before for all
