For anyone wanting to go forward with this, here's a summary of the feature request:

    Given two non-zero same signed integers x and y,
    log10(Fraction(x, y)) does the same as log10(x / y).

    This works well unless the ratio of x to y is outside
    the range supported by floats.

    What is desired is that for extreme values of x and y,
    that log10() will treat the fraction differently and
    compute log10(x) - log10(y) instead of log10(x / y).
