-0.5 on making the math module functions aware of decimals.  

The math module was originally conceived as thin wrapper around the C math library.  Subsequently, it has had feature creep (I'm guilty of putting the integer factorial method in this module).  I don't think further creep and loss of focus is warranted.

Making some functions decimal aware and others not is probably not a good idea.

Also, if someone is using decimals, they are better of using the methods supplied in that module (those have at least passed the huge battery of tests for compliance with the spec).
