    Sure, but if people change something, they get a warning and can think
    _again_, your current macro prevents this. That hardcoded type is just
    to easy to miss and can introduce subtle bugs. The typeof version
    automatically chooses that largest of the types and possibly warns you.
    Why would you want something different?
