The Python core developers are currently working on several improvements
for floats and the math module. Since you are "power users" I like to
get your opinion and suggestions on several patches:

http://bugs.python.org/issue1534 -- sys.float_info [done]
http://bugs.python.org/issue1580 -- shorter repr of floats
http://bugs.python.org/issue1635 -- platform independent representation
and creation of +/-inf and nan
http://bugs.python.org/issue1640 -- additional functions for the math module

new: sys.maxsize, gone in 3.0: sys.maxint
