Just to be precise: in the case where the receiving type *would* have
been an int, and "nullable=True", the receiving type is actually a
structure containing an int and a "you got a None" flag. I can't stick a
magic value in the int and say "that represents you getting a None"
because any integer value may be valid.
Also, I'm pretty sure there are places in builtin argument parsing that
accept either NULL or Py_None, and I *think* maybe in one or two of them
they actually mean different things. What fun!
