For the passers-by who want to help:

The "precision too big" exception is raised in Python/formatter_unicode.c line 1168 and 1002.

The "Too many decimal digits..." exception is raised in Python/formatter_unicode.c line 71.

So the question is whether it is beneficial to differentiate the exception message. If not, we can change the exception message or test whether the digit passes INT_MAX first before checking with sys.max_size. If yes, we need to add test case for sys.max_size and use _testcapi.INT_MAX for current unit test case.
