[Python-ideas] Is there a reason some of the PyLong_As* functions don't call an object's __int__?

Right--pointing to __index__ basically implies that PyIndex_Check and
subsequent PyNumber_AsSsize_t than there currently are.  That I could
agree with but then it becomes a question of where are those cases?
And what do with, e.g. interfaces like PyLong_AsLongAndOverflow().
Add more PyNumber_ conversion functions?
