Actually, I think I've convinced myself that the
conversion from a string isn't worth it. Yes,
it's easy to parse a string and tell that
"3.14" is the same as "314/1000", but it's easy
enough that there's no good reason to do it for
the user. Half the time, I would think that
users would want to do something special anyway:
rounding off to lower precision, checking for
overflow, etc.
