PyObject* PyLong_FromString(const char *str, char **pend, int base)

pend should be const char**

I think casting const away when not required should be a crime punishable by imprisonment.

PyLong_FromString() is consistent with standard C functions strtol(), strtod(), etc. Changing pend's type to "const char**" is backward incompatible.
