Terry,  I posted this mod as an idea on python-ideas, as you suggested.
Also, I made the additional suggestion that decimal floating point be 
considered as the primary floating point type for python4.x, with an 
optional binary floating type (2.345b) if the user might like that.

As Steven pointed out last week, we have a fast module now for decimal
floating point; it seems this is a good time to consider this as a serious 
idea for future python(s).
