[snip float-context manager stuff]

Decimal has a context manager like that already (I don't know if it supports allowing NaNs to equal each other, though). 
  Rather than adding the whole thing to float, perhaps extending Decimal's context with that option is a possible route.

I would also prefer something like this to a new equals operator.
