I like the idea of adding a free list of longs in Python 3, but I think we should extend this somewhat to cover more ground, e.g. by pre-allocating a block of 1 digit long objects, like we did for Python 2 ints, and perhaps allocate up to 4k (= 1 memory page) towards such a free list.

The added cache locality of having the data in a pre-allocated block should provide some more performance.
