But wasn't the issue that you just wanted it to always be unsigned? I
think its safe to assume that 'unsigned int' has that property.
We should only use fixed size types where it matters - ie a RID is
always and must always be a uint32 - but general counter can just be an
int, and let the platform chose the best data type.
Does that make sense?
