after reading the announcement I also read the "highlights" within
New or upgraded built-ins
decimal - a new numeric type that allows for the accurate representation of
floating point numbers (avoiding the problems of binary floating point)
And I am very happy about this and eagerly looking forward to. But: as much
as I understand from the PEP and the discussion on py-dev, it will be a
module within the standard library.
And not something built in Python -- at the moment.
Am I wrong with this information?
