I disagree with you, mark. The patch is around 20 lines and does optimize all
cases, not only the "huge integers". See my benchmark: conversion for small
integers (type 'int') are also faster (7 to 22%). I think that the base 10 is more
common than 2^k bases, and a conversion from integer to decimal string is a
very common operation in Python.
