Honestly, my answer on the remaining changes is no.  There is just way
to much churn with this stuff, and changing from unsigned int to
uint32_t seems quite pointless, as is the worry that when walking over
an array of at most 64, that we might somehow end up at 2^31.


I understand your passion for ensuring this is is 'right', but I think
we have other things that would be better to spend the analysis on.
