New submission from Mark Dickinson <dickinsm at gmail.com>:
The following C-API functions:
call nb_int for inputs that don't satisfy PyLong_Check. They thus accept
floats, Decimal instances, etc. They should probably call nb_index
instead (or perhaps accept only instances of int).
The uses of these functions within the Python source should be checked, to
see what consequences (if any) this change would have for Python
semantics; it's possible that some of these consequences would fall under
the moratorium (PEP 3003). In any case, this change probably requires a
1-release deprecation period.
