Yes, the patch depends on two facts -- 8-bit bytes and a two's
complement representation of integers. That's why I call it a trick.
However, today CPython will not work on other platforms. However, we can
wrap macro definition in #if/#else/#end and provide the traditional form
(but I don't remember how to test a two's complement representation in
compile time).
