As Toni mentioned in another msg, the decimal module seems unnecesary
for mesh_unfolder.  Not surprising.  Decimal is for money and similar
not-really-float things.  I suspect formatted prints could fix any 
problems.  Bottom line: decimal appears to be a non-issue.

For both mesh_unfolder and the Collada script, the best short term
solution is to check the xml import and if it fails, abort the script
with a nice message about installing python.
