I've expressed elsewhere, moving bitwise operators to a 'bit' module would
be pythonic IMO. The number of times you have to do bitwise operation in
python it tiny; bitwise operations are low level operations.
That said, it is unlikely to be changed because moving them would be more
of a pain that keeping them as-is.
