I just had a thought regarding the Decimal class. If the longer-term
intention is to move the class into the core, then would it be
sensible to name the class "decimal" (lowercase) rather than
"Decimal"? The situation seems similar to the set class, which
undergoes a capitalisation change in 2.4 in a similar manner.
