I don't think support for fractional nanoseconds is important.  Does anyone have a use case for fractional nanoseconds?  If not, I think it would be best to change Time to just store nanoseconds as integer instead of a rational.  However, that's definitely a more involved change.

Feature #16470: Issue with nanoseconds in Time#inspect
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16470#change-86575

----------------------------------------
Ruby 2.7 added nanosecond representation to the return value of `Time#inspect` method.

Nanosecond is displayed as `Rational` as in the following example:

```ruby
t = Time.utc(2007, 11, 1, 15, 25, 0, 123456.789)
t.inspect # => "2007-11-01 15:25:00 8483885939586761/68719476736000000 UTC"
```

The nanosecond value `8483885939586761/68719476736000000` can be expanded to `0.12345678900000001`. This is different from the stored nanosecond:

```ruby
t.nsec # => 123456789
t.strftime("%N") # => "123456789"
```

I assume it isn't expected, and will be fixed.
