In November there was an interesting discussion on comp.lang.python about the meaning of __str__ and __repr__. One tidbit that came out of this discussion was that __str__ for longs should drop the trailing 'L'. Was there a decision on this? I'd really like this to happen.
I liked that result as well, and thought about it just the other day. Luckily, you sent a note this morning and made me think about again. I'll have something checked into CVS shortly. ;)
