I think this is closer to a language wide change and should probably be 
addressed for 2.7 and 3.1.  It would be great to change the C argument 
parsing API to make its error messages more specific.

For Py2.6, I think things are fine as it stands.  This isn't a bug 
(tests pass, it matches results from previous pythons, etc)  
Reclassifying as a feature request for improved error reports for the 
argument parsing API.
