I have an integer that I want to encode as a hex string, but I don't
want "0x" at the beginning, nor do I want "L" at the end if it happened
to be a long. The result needs to be something I can pass to int(h, 16)
to get back my original integer.
The brute force way works:
h = hex(i)
h = h[2:]
h = h[:-1]
but I'm wondering if there's some built-in call which gives me what I
want directly. Python 2.7.
