I reopen the issue for the second part of my plan:

"Once they will be removed, it will become possible to move the detection of the IEEE 754 format in the build step (./configure script) rather than doing the detection at runtime (slower). It would remove an "if" in _PyFloat_Pack4() and _PyFloat_Pack8(), and allow to specialize these functions for the detected format at build time. These functions are used by serialization formats: marshal, pickle and struct."
