This kind of question is better discussed on the `python' list than the
`python-dev' list.

You may try int('0x7c', 16) if you know the base, or int(`0x7c', 0) if
you do not.  The doc-string for `int' does not hint at using 0 as a base
when it has to be guessed, maybe this is an oversight?  The Library
Reference Manual says all about it, however! :-)
