This is a good example of why you shouldn't program language X in language Y.

For starters, `intX.__str__` should be written as `str(intX)`;

For middlers, intX_asString is probably not necessary (is it being printed? then
do a `print intX`, or a `print "size left on disk: %d" % intX`, etc.

For finishers, why the System Hungarian Notation?

intLength1 = 5 # feet
intLength2 = 13 # centimeters
