What is the feeling of this group about adding some kind of 
exact real number calculation module to scipy.

I know there is a wrapping of the gnu multiprecision library that is
GPL.

But, there is an excellent self-contained module called real.py that is
completely free (no expressed copyright) By Jurjen N.E. Bos
(jurjen at q2c.nl).

His module allows one to to infinite digit calculations which can come
in very handy sometimes.  Should we include a version of this module in
scipy?
