Right. The short ones are a hangover from before C99 added the real,
standard types.

We really don't want to be screwing around with non-standard nonsense
like DWORD, u32, and whatever the BSDs use which ISTR is different

Just join us in the 21st century and use the C standard types. Yes,

You'll get over it.
