Will there be a keyword/function for integer division after that?
Not that my opinion has any weight in this matter, but I got used
to integer division as default behavior after all C, and java
work that way too, it is not like it is a pythonic oddity.
Once it gets implemented then there will be numerous questions about
doing integer division.
