Whoever should be that? :-)
I'd say go for long. But I don't have any reasons than
a good feeling in the stomach. Long seems to be quite
close to what we want on 64 bit, no?
Another criterion is to reduce the number of #ifdefs.
I think this works. So yes, please use the most
obvious types that seem to be.
