Hi Chris,

Thanks for the PEP and the implementation!

You'll get more attention If you open an issue with a patch at
bugs.python.org. Having a GitHub repository is good, but the isclose()
code(with tests and documentation) needs to be integrated into the
CPython code base:

* The C implementation should be in Modules/mathmodule.c
* Tests should be in Lib/test/test_math.py
* Documentation should be in Doc/library/math.rst
* Add an entry to Doc/whatsnew/3.5.rst
* If I remember correctly, we don't need the Python implementation and its tests
