In case you don't believe me, believe a "C" compiler :

$ echo -e '#include <stdio.h>\nint main(){ printf("%u %u\\n",sizeof(int),sizeof(void*));}' > si.c
$ gcc -o si si.c
$ ./si
4 8

Any code that assumes that "sizeof(int) == sizeof(char*)" on
an x86_64 is broken, and any test that emits messages to this
effect is profoundly disconcerting . I wish I didn't have to
support python on my system.
