> the requirements are different for 2.6:  floats should give a 
> DeprecationWarning rather than a TypeError. 

I thought about it, but the comment in,

	# Reject floats when it would require PyLongs to represent.                                                                                                                                          
	# (smaller floats still accepted, but deprecated)  

convinced me that raising TypeError on large floats is a feature.  I don't have a strong opinion on this issue, but I think a conservative approach is not to change current behavior in the maintenance branch unless it is clearly a bug.

I did add a test checking that "smaller floats still accepted, but deprecated."
