Patch #1067760 deals with passing of float values to file.seek;
the original version tries to fix the current implementation
by converting floats to long long, rather than plain C long
(thus supporting files larger than 2GiB).
I propose a different approach: passing floats to seek should
be an error. My version of the patch uses the index API, this
will automatically give an error.
a) should floats be supported as parameters to file.seek
b) if not, should Python 2.6 just deprecate such usage,
or outright reject it?
