We need both in different situations.

Thanks. In my cursory checks, it looks to me like you've counted digits
correctly. I'll add this to scipy_test. Does anyone have better names for
these. They are quite arbitrary and indistinguishable right now. How
about:
assert_significant_equal
assert_decimal_equal
These names give a little more info about what is happening in the function.
thoughts?
