Another solution is to use an identity test for the step argument

    _one = 1

    class Random:
        def randrange(start, stop=None, step=_one):
            if stop is None and step is _one:
                if istart > 0:
                    return self._randbelow(istart)

This has the advantage of keeping the API unchanged while still keeping the fast path fast.
