Looks like this was changed in a checkin by Tim Peters in r21099;  before 
r21099, PyLong_AsUnsignedLongLong raised OverflowError for negative 
numbers.  After the checkin, it raised TypeError.  I suspect the change 
was inadvertent.

Tim, any comments?

Lisandro, do you have any interest in contributing a patch for this?  The 
patch should change the exception type, fix the docs, add a test or two 
for the fixed behaviour of PyLong_AsUnsignedLongLong to 
Modules/_testcapimodule.c, and fix the test_struct test for the 'Q' format
