Hmm. I don't think there's been any such move. Maybe there
Benjamin wondered aloud about deprecating PyNumber_Long
in the issue 4910 discussion; I suggested deprecating
PyNumber_Int instead, but on reflection I think Benjamin's right:
it seems neater to keep the PyNumber_Int <-> int() <-> nb_int
naming connections than the PyNumber_Long <-> PyLong
At any rate, I think it would be good to deprecate one or the
other; I don't really have a strong opinion about which one.
