As of recently I'm getting deprecation warnings on lots of 
constructs of the form "0xff << 24", telling me that in Python 
2.4 this will return a long.

As these things are bitpatterns (they're all generated from .h 
files for system call interfaces and such) that the user will 
pass to methods that wrap underlying API calls I don't want them 
to be longs. How do I force them to remain ints?
