The C decimal implementation is quite finished, but really not ready
for production usage.
Actually, what this work proved is that is not enough to translate
decimal.py, there should be a redesign of the structure. There's a lot
of mails from Raymond H. about this. And he's right.
Regarding the SOC, I approved Matheusz's work, because he finished the
task, and even if we need to recode it, we learned in the process.
You're free to look at it, the C decimal implementation is in the sandbox.
