Well, that's true, but large numbers of people forget that "many" itself is
a number ...

1, 2, many, many 1, many 2, many many, many many 1, many many 2, many many
many, lots!

I say throw out FP, BCD, rational. Get rid of integers and long integers.
All Python needs is troll representation! It is impossible to have an
inexact representation ... although precision may suffer a bit ...
