That would be an interesting precedent:  I don't think there are many (any?) other places outside the 'decimal' module that deal with Decimal objects (excluding general purpose serialization protocols and the like).

Decimal's support for conversion to-and-from float (and comparison with float) is stronger than it used to be; I think this could work.
