Jason, that the dl module requires sizeof(int) == sizeof(char *) does not mean that it (or we) thinks this to be true on every platform.  Rather, the module is written in a way that requires this equality, and rather than crashing it does this check beforehand.

As you may have noticed, the dl module is deprecated anyway in favor of ctypes, and removed in Python 3.x.
