Nothing, because it ain't gonna happen.  In order for PEP754 to work, we
need to have a bunch of people volunteer to maintain the IEEE-754
semantics for a bunch of difference platforms.  Feel free to try to drum
up interest, but the PEP won't be accepted until there's evidence that
people are making long-term commitments.
