Another option is to test for type(value) == int:

>>> before = ["a",0,0,"b",None,"c","d",0,1,False,0,1,0,3,[],0,1,9,0,0,
{},0,0,9]
>>> wanted = ["a","b",None,"c","d",1,False,1,3,[],1,9,
{},9,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0]
>>> after = sorted(before, key=lambda x: x == 0 and type(x) == int)
>>> assert str(after) == str(wanted)
>>> after
['a', 'b', None, 'c', 'd', 1, False, 1, 3, [], 1, 9, {}, 9, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0,
0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

That way float values will be left alone, too:

>>> sorted([0.0, 0, False, [], "x"], key=lambda x: x == 0 and type(x) ==
int)
[0.0, False, [], 'x', 0]
