What is PY_SSIZE_T_MAX supposed to be?  The definition in pyport.h 
doesn't compile.

Shouldn't a lot of checks for INT_MAX be replaced with PY_SSIZE_T_MAX? 
Like in the slice indexing code?

Thanks for all your effort on ssize_t fixing.  This is a *big* deal for 
64-bit number crunching with Python.
