I really wish C99 would not have defined so many different special types.
It adds a tremenous amount of complexity to the use of the language.
I do, however, think "uint" is something that makes basic sense. The
"unsigned" or "unsigned int" type is used often enough, and "uint" is a
rather obvious short-hand.
Ah, well. That's probably not even worth 2cents. :)
