Resuming a discussion from here:


I'm looking at implementing Decimal support in various ECMAScript 
implementations, but before I waste anybody's time, and while I 
understand the "no regression" requirement, I'd like to know if there 
are any "secondary" characteristics that I need to be aware of.

For example, Brendan asked me to run SunSpider tests, the results of 
which are described here:


A brief overview of what Decimal support entails:

   * A Decimal class, with a number of methods that end up being
     a thin layer over...

   * A library made available under the following license:

   * Support for decimal literals (e.g. 1.5m)

   * Modification to unary and binary operators to invoke the
     underlying methods and/or conversions.
