At least in the x86_64 world, "unsigned int" has 32bit.
TTBOMK, it is similar on all other 64bit - otherwise there is no way to
address 32bit ("short int" is usually 16 bit).

on typing is not a good reason - if your typing speed is the main
issue when you're coding, you're doing something seriously wrong."
