FYI: the double-conversion library at http://code.google.com/p/double-conversion already contains code for the fallback case. It would not be necessary to keep Python's existing code just for the 0.5%.
The library is now used by Firefox, Chrome, and Webkit, and should be well tested.
It's biggest deficiency (compared to Gay's dtoa.c) is its specialization to IEEE doubles. Floats or long doubles are not supported. If Python needs to support these types I recommend not to switch.
