Thanks to you, and to all who pointed me to the place in the source
where this is.
How exactly did you search for this? Taking a hint from the url
above, I went to Google Code Search and searched for "python tuple
hash" (minus the quotes, of course), which produced a ton of
irrelevant stuff (almost 80K hits). Searching for "python tuple
hash lang:c" cut down the number of hits to ~8K, but still too much
to wade through. Clearly I need a smarter search strategy (one
that does not include foreknowledge of the name of the actual
function in the C source, of course).
