I am inclined to prefer the use of int16, int32, int64, int8, char. These
leave it entirely unambiguous which one you wanted and can be typedefed by
a standard header file to avoid a lot of machine dependency. It ain't perfect,
but it's pretty damn close.

Anyone with a 48 bit int deserves what he gets;-)
