That's what I thought....

That's not my experience. If you try and use strings, you get dialog
boxes popping up. If you use ints, it works fine.

So, the problem is how to protect ints when you don't want people to get
at them... Adding accessors mean you have protected accessors bu there's
nothing to stop you just going and using the freely available original

Strings; fine, at least they're secure, and when they become proper
objects in Python 2.0, the problem should go away?
