In https://docs.python.org/3.5/library/stdtypes.html#bitwise-operations-on-integer-types the sentence "this assumes a sufficiently large number of bits that no overflow occurs during the operation" looks wrong to me, so I asked on #python and got from @benzrf:

"this assumes that there are sufficiently many bits for no overflow to occur during the operation"

Which looks better to me.
