['money datatype' for database stored values]

What ist the real problem? Do you have problems converting results of 
float calculations to the 'money datatype' before storing them in the 
database, or do you want to avoid the precision issues which come with 
the conversion od non-integer values between binary and decimal?
In the latter case use the Decimal data type from module decimal (comes 
with the python distribution -- it is mentioned in the tutorial).
