There is a patch now committed in PG CVS for a type "pgipfloat".
Officially syntax should match spec here:
Emacs is not going to check but other stricter tools might.

For 4.0, there are over 300 direct downloads since 10th Oct, about a
dozen registrations, but I don't know how many correspond to real users
or real Isabelle users. (How many downloads does Isabelle get per month
out of interest?)
Feedback from bona fide committed Isabelle hackers welcome!
