[issue2985] xmlrpclib doesn't support 64bit integer replies

New submission from Riku Lindblad <riku.lindblad at gmail.com>:

When querying a XML-RPC server that returns a 64 bit integer, the python
interface always returns an empty tuple.

When running with verbose=True the response is still intact, the library
just can't parse the result between the <i8></i8> tags.

Example response:
body: '<?xml version="1.0"
