Would there still be an int type and a long type in Python 3.0, or would the 
notion of a long be be dropped. If it were dropped, then the int 
representation would be transparently represented as a long if the size of 
the number could not fit in an int. If long is dropped then the long function 
could be added to the list of builtins that will disappear in Python 3.0.
