[lang][PATCH] lang.math.Fraction class deficiencies





------- Additional Comments From cananian@alumni.princeton.edu  2004-07-04 20:21 -------
If I understand your comment correctly (comparing against my original list of
Fraction deficiencies), you want all of the improvements except you want to
preserve unreduced fractions in the interface.  The latest version of the patch
does that; the only thing you might want to change is to remove the @deprecated
flags on the interfaces which return unreduced fractions.

Just for the record, no one has yet shown me any convincing reason to preserve
unreduced fractions.  And note that the original interface also silently reduced
fractions when performing mathematical operations.

But the final version of the patches are completely compatible with any existing
users of Fraction.
