Handling slices

Hi, Python friends.

I'm currently using Python 2.2.1.  How does one support slices when given
to __getitem__?  Suppose I get a slice object.  How can I use it to get
a slice of a local array?  In other words, how one does apply a slice?

The documentation says that __getslice__ is deprecated since 2.0, but then,
I need an alternative way for using it.  What is it?
