Oh, this is sad. Now I know why Tcl have implemented also a decimal to
binary routine.

Perhaps we can simply use both their routines? If I am not mistaken,
their only real dependency is on a library which allows arbitrary long
integers, called tommath, from which they use a few basic functions.
We can use instead the functions from longobject.c. It will probably
be somewhat slower, since longobject.c wasn't created to allow
in-place operations, but I don't think it should be that bad -- we are
mostly talking about compile time.
