Comment (by AndrewStraw):

 For what it's worth, there's a very interesting thread on repr() and
 (Python) floats here:
 http://bugs.python.org/issue1580

 Also reference in that page is a useful reference to an IEEE 754
 compliance checker: http://www.cant.ua.ac.be/ieeecc754.html This software
 looks like it could be extremely useful for integrating into numpy
 correctness tests.
