The changes I uploaded only implement (and in some cases, fix some bugs in)
extended slicing support in various builtin types. None of the API changes
would be backported (although 2.6 in py3k-warning-mode should obviously tell
people to not define __getslice__, and instead accept slice objects in
__getitem__. Perhaps even when not in py3k-warnings-mode.)
