      Tag: string_methods
Log Message:
PyInt_FromString(): New API function which converts a string (char*)
into a PyInteger.  Arguments are the character string, a char** and
the integer base.  base==0 means choose the default base depending on
the leading characters of the string (after stripping the sign), a la
string.atoi().  The second argument returns the character position of
the end of the conversion.

This method encapsulates all the string->int conversions in Python, in 
an API that can be used by string.atoi() and int().
