The problem with the roundtrip PyFloat_FromDouble(PyFloat_AsDouble(obj)) is that (in contrary to PyNumber_Index()) it is lossy. Converting Decimal, Fraction, float128 to float before using it in expression can lead to loss of precision.

So such conversion looks to me less useful than operator.index().
