The rational constructor should accept decimals directly.

Rational(Decimal('3.1')) does not suffer the same representation error 
problems as Rational(float('3.1')).  The conversion from decimal is 
lossless and does not depend on the decimal context.  There is no need 
for a separate constructor.
