Python 2.4 / built-ins

after reading the announcement I also read the "highlights" within

Under headline

New or upgraded built-ins

there is

decimal - a new numeric type that allows for the accurate representation of
floating point numbers (avoiding the problems of binary floating point)
(PEP 327)
And I am very happy about this and eagerly looking forward to. But: as much
as I understand from the PEP and the discussion on py-dev, it will be a
module within the standard library.

And not something built in Python -- at the moment.

Am I wrong with this information?
