What is the use case for getting the maximum and minimum of the fixed bit integers like `uint8`? It's a trivial formula to calculate those.

Now, if you're talking about platform dependent types like `int` and `long` then it might makes more sense to add such an api. Or is your end goal to just have an exception be raised when trying to fit a large number in a small type like in your example?
