Re: [Help-smalltalk] BUG gst2.2: Fraction hash

xFrac and xFloat will answer true to equality (this is arguable, because
only their floating point approximation are equal, not their
exactFraction representation, but this is another thread).

That's a bug, but not one for which I have a quick solution except making Fractions "more general" than Floats (in fact they are) and implementing

Fraction>>coerce: x
    ^x asExactFraction

Any objections?  This is a 2.4 change anyway.
