pgDecimal

PostgreSQL types based on _Decimal32 and _Decimal64 types.

I wrote this library due performance comparation with PostgreSQL's Numeric type. I would to know how much big impact has fact, so Numeric is varlena type. This initial implementation is based on basic _Decimal support, that is not complete (and check of overflow is slower, than could be with better library). This library contains some basic arithmetic operators and basic casts.

postgres=# CREATE EXTENSION decimal;
