> I think that integer overflow in _Unpickler_Read() is possible. n is read from file and can be arbitrary (up to PY_SSIZE_T_MAX). This likely cause raising an exception later, but integer overflow itself causes undefined behavior, and we should avoid it.

Hum, I understood that it's ok since numbers should be signed, but in
fact I'm not confident that n is always signed. You are right, it's
better to use your code to avoid the integer overflow. I pushed a fix.
