Also (the tracker email interface swallowed this):

> it is possible to want a type that can be used as an index or slice but that is still not a number

I'm sorry, but this requirement is absurd. An index *is* a number. You
have to make up your mind. (I know, in the context of the example that
started this, this is funny, but I still stand by it.)


Finally, the correct name should perhaps have been __integer__ but I don't see enough reason to change it now.
