If I were in that situation I would prefer to store the binary
representation. But if someone really needs to store decimal floats,
we can add a method "fast_repr" which always calculates 17 decimal
digits.

Decimal to binary conversion, in any case, shouldn't be slower than it
is now, since on Gnu it is done anyway, and I don't think that our
implementation should be much slower.
