I managed to make it work for --with-wide-int without having to
re-compile the modules (those rare 64bit values which can't be crammed
into 32bit go through an extra proxy object).  That imposes an extra
cost in the module-API for the wide-int case, but this cost should still
be smaller than what we had before (since in 99.9% of the cases, the
conversion 64<=>32 is just a matter of shuffling bits).
