Just a quick note. Nick convinced me that adding __with__ (without
losing __enter__ and __exit__!) is a good thing, especially for the
decimal context manager. He's got a complete proposal for PEP changes
which he'll post here. After a brief feedback period I'll approve his
changes and he'll check them into the PEP.

My apologies to Jason for missing the point he was making; thanks to
Nick for getting it and turning it into a productive change proposal.
