This is off-topic.  If you want types with exact bit-widths then you
can write autoconf macros.

What we are discussing is whether glib can accomodate five types of
integers instead of four: char, short, int, long, *and* llong.

In my opinion: nevermind about the exact bit-widths.

Victory to the Divine Mother!!
