I agree that Decimal should be consistent with int and float.

I'm not sure I'd classify the current behaviour as a bug, though:
presumably this behaviour was intentional at the time it was
originally coded?  I guess backporting *probably* won't do any
harm, since it seems likely that format(x, 'n') hasn't gained
wide adoption yet.

+1 for changing this in 2.7 and 3.1;  -0 for backporting the change.

Eric, did you mean to assign this to me?  I'm not sure I have
time for this at the moment, though I'd be happy to review
and test when the time comes.
