I think that when floating point number limitations are mentioned we
should also tell that there are alternatives for processing numbers with
decimal extensions. I wrote a text that introduces the Decimal and the
Fraction type to the reader.

I'll build-out the discussion a bit and mention the new float.hex() and 
float.as_integer_ratio() methods.  Will also add references to decimal 
and fractions.
