While one is able to get/set slices/items with
slice/index notation (mmapi[s:e] or mmapi[s]), one
cannot use the function equivalents,
mmapi.__setslice__(), etc.

This seems to be a bug, as nearly all other instances
produced by the Python standard library allow
instance.[special operator]() to be used.

If I knew what was necessary to expose the function
equivalents, I would offer a patch.  Being that I
don't, I won't.

Fixed in r60143 by switching the mmap object's getattr function to the
standard PyObject_GenericGetAttr().
