I think a method 5664400.to_base(13) sounds nice.

I would like to point out that this is almost, but not quite, entirely as inapropriate as using str(). Integers don't have a base. String representations of integers -- and indeed, numbers in general, as the Python tutorial explains in Appendix B -- have a base. Adding such a method to integers (and, I presume, longs) would beg the question why floats, Decimals and complex numbers don't have them.
