Your second bullet item would seem to me to be the obvious interpretation of the docs.  This is, after all, Python, so 'integer' would refer to Python integers and their operations.  So I agree with Stefan that the docs are correct as they stand.  As he also said, there may be places where OverflowError is currently raised that may not be appropriate, especially since we are dealing with a codebase that once had Python integer operations that *could* overflow.
