For 2.7, I don't see any problem with raising OverflowError for a length that's > sys.maxsize, since it's hard to have sequences larger than that anyway.

For 3.x, I'd also see this behaviour as reasonable, and not a bug.  If it's raising OverflowError for lengths *smaller* than sys.maxsize, that's a bug.  Unless that's the case, I'd call this a feature request for 3.4, rather than a bug that needs fixing in all the maintenance branches.
