[Python-Dev] PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN in py3k

It turns out (*) that even in py3k, not all modules are PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN.
Should we try to remedy that, and make PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN the default in future
3.x versions?
As far I know, there's no reason not to be PY_SSIZE_T_CLEAN, except for having
to convert old code.

PS : no, I'm not volunteering to do it all myself :)
