The minus sign might have been deliberate at some stage, but I realize it is more accessible etc if it was ASCII -1, so I will change that.

The idea of changing the signature is to avoid people thinking it accepts a keyword argument. See e.g. Issue 25030 for seek(offset, whence=SEEK_SET), Issue 14586 for truncate(size=None).
