New changeset ee71d8023f1b by Georg Brandl in branch '3.3':
Closes #16149: remove now-false statement about the inability to compare Decimal and float objects.

I think the fix should be applied to 2.7 and 3.2 too. See issue2531 which allowed comparing decimals and floats.

Ah, sorry, I thought this was a 3.3 thing.

Planted to 3.2 in 1dc66e654806.  Turns out the offending paragraph wasn't in 2.7.
