    23862382    Extra objects to place in the global namespace in which tests are run.

    23882384    be useful.
    2389 
    2390     In particular, on Python 3 add ``long`` as an alias for ``int`` so that
    2391     tests that use the ``long`` built-in (of which there are many) still pass.
    2392     We do this so that the test suite can run on Python 3 while Python 2 is
    2393     still the default.

    23962387    def __init__(self, source):

With Python 3 doctesting, long has been automatically converted to int. It would be better to not have such a big difference in the behavior of doctesting vs. ordinary Sage usage: with Python 3, evaluating long(3) would fail at the command line but work in doctesting.
