That patch was a bit hasty in many respects;  here's a better one.

For 2.7, the scheme is as follows:  when packing a non-integer with an integer format:

(1) First __index__ is tried
(2) If the __index__ method doesn't exist, or the call to __index__ raises TypeError, then the __int__ method is tried.
(3) If the __index__ method raises something other than TypeError, or returns a non-integer, then struct.pack fails.
