True enough.

If I really wanted to be 100% safe, how about this -

    def get_int(s):
        if '.' in s:
            num, dec = s.split('.', 1)
            if dec != '':
                if int(dec) != 0:
                    raise ValueError('Invalid literal for int')
            return int(num)
        return int(s)
