OK, problem (sorta) solved.  I dug through docs, and found a different 
string value "LLL", which is for long long's (_int64 on Win32).  Just a 
note for anyone looking for the same thing, the formatting strings are 
dotted around the docs (Extending and Embeding & Python/C API).

Anyone any ideas how I get rid of the L from numbers ? :)
