I have created a project here:


I wrote a dmath.py library module for use with the C accelerated decimal module, that I would like to see merged into the C Python distribution so that folks have it by default... without having to pull it down with GIT, or whatever.

Anyway, thanks for responding (everyone) and for your consideration. 

Oh, and one more thing... whoever is doing the work on IDLE these days, nice job!   It is stable, reliable, and just works/   appreciate it!

Kind regards,
