Referencing bug 1619659

This patch ensures that htonl and friends never accept or return negative numbers, per the underlying C implementation.

I wrote a test case to ensure things work as expected, and ensured all tests pass.

Thanks, submitted.

(Note that I had to fix the indentation in your patch; you used four spaces where the original code used tabs.  Please be consistent!)

Can you check if there's a need to update the docs?  If there is, send me a doc patch and I'll apply it.

Hmm, I'll remember consistency when working with the C implementation.  The Python that I've looked at seems to always use 4 spaces.  At any rate, here's a doc patch.  It essentially just makes "n bit integers" read "n bit positive integers".  Other than that, I can think of no way to update the docs to reflect the scope of this patch.

Thanks for everything, Guido!
