[Python-Dev] Arguments and PyInt_AsLong

Looking at #1153226, I found this:

We introduced emitting a DeprecationWarning for PyArg_ParseTuple
integer arguments if a float was given. This doesn't affect functions
like file.seek which use PyInt_AsLong to parse their argument.
PyInt_AsLong calls the nb_int slot which silently converts floats
to ints.

Is that acceptable, should PyInt_AsLong not accept other numbers
or should the functions be changed?
