I didn't really consider floats. bit_length() is only provided to ints for example.

I think a better solution to pick apart floats would be a function similar to math.frexp, if it isn't already sufficient. float.bits_at(pos, width) seems a worse solution because the position of each bit would be arbitrary. But I have no major objection against it being extended to floats.
