Yes. I think decimal adds value, but I'm afraid my strongest reason
for thinking so is that decimal is getting added to other languages
modern/fashionable" if it doesn't have it and therefore get used less
and therefore have a less healthy community of users.
I have other reasons too, but that's the strongest.
