> Mark, was there perhaps a reason not to add the method?

In the past, there's been a desire to keep the decimal module minimal in scope, implementing little more than what's required for the specification. A number of proposed additions have been rejected on this basis.

Ah, and now I read Stefan's reference to #8947. I'm not sure anything has really changed since that discussion.

Count me as -0E0 on the proposal.

Off-topic: I wonder whether `int.as_integer_ratio` should be implemented (for the same reasons that `int.numerator`, `int.real` and so on are).
