No problem with that.

What exactly do you have in mind apart from unlimited integers in Python and real and complex floating-point arithmetic with arbitrary precision in mpmath.

The calculations could also be carried out lazily and only at the end the required precision is specified.
Similar to WolframAlpha where more digits can be requested.
Or the precision could be changed during the calculation.
