I'm looking for a way to get (using Python) the maximum and minimum values of C types integers (ie  uint8, int8, uint16, int16, uint32, int32, uint64, int64...) from Python.

I asked this question on StackOverflow and get a nice answer

but I wonder if this kind of feature couldn't be add directly in `ctypes.c_` as property.

Maybe we could have the following properties:
- `issigned`
- `max`
- `min`

Moreover being able to convert a number into a C type integer raising exception when input data is out of range could also be considered
Maybe using code like
(instead of silently overflow)

Kind regards
