Here's an experimental patch, against the py3k branch, that makes Python 
represent its long integers internally in base 2**30 instead of base 
2**15, on platforms that have 32-bit and 64-bit integers available.

On platforms for which autoconf is unable to find both 32-bit and 64-bit 
integers, the representation falls back to the usual one.
