Fractions are great for all sorts of exact computations (including money/currency calculations), but are quite slow due to the need for normalisation at instantiation time.

I adapted the existing telco benchmark to use Fraction instead of Decimal to make this problem more visible. One change I made was to take the data reading out of the measured loop. I/O is not part of what the benchmark should measure.

Please consider adding it to the benchmark suite.
