Victor, don't ask me, look at the code:  the random.choice() implementations in Python 2 and Python 3 have approximately nothing in common, and "the bug" here should already be impossible in Python 3 (but I can't check that, because I don't have a platform that does double-rounding).  I already pointed out (in my 2015-07-05 15:42 note) that Python 3 uses "only integers" in most cases.

"It's easy to replace int(i * random.random()) with randint(0, i)".  You didn't say that was your _intent_, and I didn't guess it.  In that case you also have to weigh in the considerable extra expense of adding another Python-level function call.  The speed of these things is important, and it's annoying enough just to add the expense of calling the C-level `min()`.
