Yes, you can reduce the fraction 1234/5678.
Bad Luck :p

~ $  python3 -m doctest /usr/lib/python3.1/fractions.py
**********************************************************************
File "/usr/lib/python3.1/fractions.py", line 165, in
fractions.Fraction.limit_denominator
Failed example:
    Fraction(1234, 5678).limit_denominator(10000)
Expected:
    Fraction(1234, 5678)
Got:
    Fraction(617, 2839)
