Yes, I'd heard about this.  But I wasn't too sure of its status,
and it isn't implemented by the compilers I regularly use.

C and C++ both have TR's for decimal floating-point in the works. They were paused, waiting for IEEE-754R, a revision to IEEE-754 that includes decimal floating-point, to be completed. That happened a month or so ago, and now both TR's are moving forward.
