Without wanting to bikeshed, I think these methods should take
underscores as other int methods already do. This kind of
inconsistencies is really annoying (have you ever used PHP? :-)).

I'm also fine with adding it to 2.7 as well. But someone has to provide
a patch (2.7 still has both `int` and `long`, which will make the task a
bit more involved than a straight backport).
