Bug #10286: BigDecimal - inconsistency with other numeric classes
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10286

* Author: Konstantin H
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.1.3p242 (2014-09-19 revision 47630) [x86_64-darwin13.0]
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
Unlike other numerical classes, BigDecimal does not raise ArgumentError when I try to parse invalid value.

~~~
require 'bigdecimal'

BigDecimal('invalid value')
# => #<BigDecimal:7fe6f9a6a058,'0.0',9(9)>

Float('invalid value')
# ArgumentError: invalid value for Float(): "invalid value"

Integer('invalid value')
# ArgumentError: invalid value for Integer(): "invalid value"

Complex('invalid value')
# ArgumentError: invalid value for convert(): "invalid value"

Rational('invalid value')
# ArgumentError: invalid value for convert(): "invalid value"
~~~
