That sounds fine to me, though if we find more instances of signed overflow that actually trigger test failures in the maintenance branches (like the int_pow one) on mainstream compilers, we might want to fix those there too, on a case-by-case basis.

To get started, here's a patch that fixes occurrences of signed overflow in the bytes, str and tuple hash methods, and also in set lookups.  It also fixes a related and minor casting inconsistency in dictobject.c  (which was using (size_t)hash & mask in some places, and just 'hash & mask' in others).  These are the minimal changes required to get Python to build completely using Clang with '-ftrapv' turned on and --with-pydebug enabled.
