If you grep for OverflowError in the C code base, you'll see that it is
in practice used for the present kind of error. Examples:
- "signed short integer is less than minimum"
- "%c arg not in range(0x110000)"
- "size does not fit in an int"
- "module name is too long"
- "modification time overflows a 4 byte field"
- "range too large to represent as a range_iterator"
- "Python int too large to convert to C size_t"
(at this point I am bored of pasting examples but you get the point)
