[Python-Dev] Cross-platform math functions?

I'm curious if there is any interest in the Python community to achieve
better cross-platform math behavior. A quick test shows a
non-surprising difference between the platform implementations.
Question: Is there any interest in changing the behavior to produce
identical results across platforms (for example by utilizing fdlibm
)? Since I have need for a set of cross-platform math functions I'll
probably start with a math-compatible fdlibm module (unless somebody has
done that already ;-)
 Using Python 2.4:
>>> import math
