If someone could do this, I'd appreciate it. I like Neil's
idea of using a type flag to signal "new style number", but apart
from that, I think that the web page pretty much makes things
The patch would need to be updated to Python 2.0, though -- don't
have time for this myself, so it's up to you.
I completely agree with Neil, that these things should be
done now rather than later: the current coercion mechanism is
a major bottleneck when it comes to implementing new types in C
that are supposed to interoperate with existing builtin types.
What the patch basically does is add Python's instance coercion
support to the C level -- in a backward compatible way.
