I've spent some time working through the new hash function by re-implementing it for gmpy. Very elegant design.

I like _PyHASH_MODULUS better, too.

Regarding a hash function for complex types, I think documenting the existing behavior for PyComplex is sufficient. The magic number 1000003 could be documented in hash_info as 'multiplier' and _PyHASH_MULTIPLIER. The same constant, but a different algorithm, is also used when hashing a tuple.

I think hash(m/P) should preserve sign. It just seems more symmetrical. :)
