Unfortunately, I think all of this is going to have to wait for Python 
3.0 to be released before we can consider committing anything.  The 
first step is to commit the pure bugfixes (missing casts, etc.).  I 
suppose we *could* do this for 2.6.1/2.7 now, but it seems safer to make 
all the changes in the 2.x and 3.x branches simultaneously.

By the way, I think we can also get rid of wdigit---it can be safely 
replaced by digit everywhere, as far as I can tell.
