[Python-Dev] ssize_t question: longs in header files

$ grep long */*.h

minus comments, etc  yields several questions about whether some
values should use Py_ssize_t rather than C longs.  In particular:

 * hash values
Include/abstract.h:     long PyObject_Hash(PyObject *o);  // also in object.h
Include/object.h:typedef long (*hashfunc)(PyObject *);

 * ints:  Include/intobject.h:    long ob_ival;
 * thread values (probably no need to change since platform dependent)

Attached is the whole list.  This is just for C longs.  The int list
is much bigger and coming in a different msg.
