Sure, errors should never pass silently. This function shouldn't be called with nonpositive arguments. And there is no highbit of 0 (and there are infinitely many of negative numbers;).

ValueError is probably best - though IndexError can also be argued for, since this is quite analogous to pop from empty list. :-)
