If you do not need a direct call to float128 in your condition, you can
easily make it compatible on all platforms.
Do not import numpy with "from numpy import ...", but only "import numpy",
make your decision based on cond and the presence of float128 ('float128' in
dir(numpy)) and everything will be fine ;)
