Well since you put it in the form of a question, I'll put in my two cents. 
 uint is fine by the standard.  However, the standard goes out of it's way 
to define lots of special types (like size_t, ptrdiff_t, etc.).  I'd 
personally stick with standard types whenever possible and not get into 
the habit of redining types all over the place.
