A few things:

- There is no %-formatting for Decimal types. They're being converted to float first. That's why it appears that %-formatting with 'g' works the same for decimal and float: you're really just calling the float version.

- The difference in 'g' formatting between float and Decimal is a known difference. This issue pops up every now and again, but right now I can't find where (or if) it's actually documented.

Mark: can you point to it? I don't think https://docs.python.org/3/library/string.html#format-specification-mini-language mentions it where it talks about Decimals. And I don't see any documentation for Decimal.__format__.
