Thanks a lot for the hint! However, I cannot find any documentation for
PyRange_*. I tried this page...


and google. Did I miss something?

I am sure I can get this to work with some digging, but I am posting here to
highlight a communication problem. I feel if a function is removed the
alternative should be made obvious in the associated documentation; in
particular if there is no existing documentation for the alternative.
