As general help, for the money class take a look of this:

There you'll see that the approach was to store the value, not subclass
Decimal, as the other currency info makes math ugly. For example:
  Money("15.30", currency="USD") + Money("2.33", currency="ARS")

There's a lot of discussion for a Money data type, also, in python-list
and python-dev (I even proposed a pre-PEP), but then Decimal was
implemented; check those lists at the fourth quarter of 2003 for these
