Lossless Number Conversion

Is there any library for Python that implements a kind of universal 
number object. Something that, if you divide two integers, generates a 
ratio instead of a float, or if you take the square root of a negative, 
generates a complex number instead of raising an exception? Lisp has 
something like this, and it makes number crunching much more convenient.
