My fault again.  I misremembered Guido wishing that range() returned
ValueError on floats (which I thought was strange at the time).  Going
over a previous email, I see that he did say TypeError.

In the meantime, the test_builtins.py needs to be updated to check
against TypeError rather than ValueError.  (maybe it'll be done by now;
ah, just checked, it has)
