Even in ctypes these codes are used internally for the field descriptors.
For ctypes "c_int128" seems reasonable to me.  We already have support for "
for 8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit, and 64-bit fixed sized integer types with
comparable names.  The struct module has the notion of a "standard size"
where the size is fixed, but we default to native.
