Fix Python – Why does integer division yield a float instead of another integer?

Consider this division in Python:
Python 3.1 (r31:73574, Jun 26 2009, 20:21:35) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.
>>> 2/2
1.0

Is this intended? I strongly remember earlier versions returning int/int = int. What should I do? Is there a new division operator or must I always ….
