Wouldn't you also have to deal with possible errors from the PyInt_AsLong call? E.g., after sys.exit(2**64), an OverflowException would be set. I don't know if not dealing with that exception (perhaps with PyErr_Clear) before exit might cause issues, though it seems to work in practice (with the -1 value indicating an error being turned into an exit code of 255).
