Really?  What about

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
UnicodeEncodeError: 'decimal' codec can't encode character '\uff0e' in
position 4: invalid decimal Unicode string

Decimal() accepting any c with c.isdigit() returning True, but
builtins should be less promiscuous IMO.
