That's not a python problem: the conversion of the object to a C
int/long happens in numpy (in PyArray_IntpFromSequence in this case). I
am not sure I understand exactly what the code is doing, though. I don't
understand the rationale for #ifdef/#endif in the one item in shape
tuple case (line 521 and below), as well as the call to PyNumber_Int,
