I need decimal arithmetic for business computation. As to the specification
of the arithmetic - no clue! ;-) Does TAOCP say anything about this topic?
Actually I've updated my Money class to use your FixedPoint.py. Felt much
better than when it used my quickie BigDecimal.py. ;-)
Next I gotta think about i18n for the Money stuff.
