Not many people conform to POSIX's pretentious claim on "_t". Personally I don't
typedef much of anything but I wouldn't fault anyone for using that convention (I
wouldn't do it for uint_t though).

A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
