This request relates to issue 1635:

which allows cross-platform creation of infinities and nans.
The IEEE754 standard, the C99 standard, and the standard on which 
Decimal is based all allow creation of an infinity from the string 
'Infinity' (case-independent), as well as from 'inf'.  Is there any 
reason not to allow this for floats?  I'm happy to create a patch.
