[New-bugs-announce] [issue7767] Add PyLong_AsLongLongAndOverflow

New submission from Case Van Horsen <casevh at gmail.com>:

There are "Long" and "LongLong" variants for most of the C API functions that work with PyLong. This patch adds a "LongLong" version of PyLong_AsLongAndOverflow.

This function will be helpful on 64-bit Windows platforms to quickly get a 64-bit integer or detect the need for multiple precision (or overflow). 

I can use this functionality for gmpy.
