test_getargs2 fails on Win x64:

test_getargs2 is failing on Windows x64:
test test_getargs2 failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
line 190, in test_n
    self.failUnlessEqual(99, getargs_n(Long()))
TypeError: 'Long' object cannot be interpreted as an integer

The problem is twofold: case 'n' on Win x64 (where SIZEOF_SIZE_T !=
SIZEOF_LONG) had a broken code path and needed updating.  Also, the
fallback to 'l' for systems where SIZEOF_SIZE_T == SIZEOF_LONG wasn't
correct -- it should still do a PyNumber_Index() check, and then use
PyLong_AsSize_t() to extract the value.

The attached patch corrects the behaviour on 32-bit and 64-bit systems,
including Windows.  However, it has now uncovered another bug in Windows

>>> from _testcapi import getargs_n
>>> getargs_n(sys.maxsize)
>>> getargs_n(-sys.maxsize)
>>> getargs_n(-sys.maxsize-1)

After a bit of investigation with Martin, the logic in PyLong_AsSize_t()
is incorrect and needs to be reworked to handle negative maximums properly.

Attach a slightly cleaner patch, take 2.

Committed patch in r62269.  I'll raise a separate tracker issue for 
PyLong_AsSsize_t as it isn't related to this issue.

Trent, that commit broke several tests (test_builtin for one) that
relied on a floats not being interpreted as longs.

Eek, so it does, thanks.  Applied the following patch on a bunch of 32-
bit/x64 systems, testing now, so far everything looks good...

Thanks for fixing that.

Update: the changes committed on r62269 and r62279 were incorrect and 
reverted in r62292.

Issue 2440: revert r62269 and r62279.  These changes were made in an 
effort to fix test_args2.Signed_TestCase.test_n(), which was failing on 
Windows x64 on the following line:  'self.failUnlessEqual(99, getargs_n
(Long()))'.  Although the two commits *did* fix the test on Windows 
x64, it's become clear that it's the test that's incorrect, and the 
changes to PyNumber_Index() in particular were not warranted (and 
actually violate PEP 357).  This commit will get us back to where we 
were at r62268, before I started butchering things.

The reworked patch fixes, such that it verifies Long() 
and Int() can't be used as indexes.  It also fixes the handling of 'n' 
in getargs.c's convertsimple().  Committed in r62462.
