    I guess it's along the lines of
    - portability

    (note how this contradicts itself). Really. I have yet to
    figure out why everyone invents their own xxx32_t types,
    like e.g. glib. well, integer types, one might understand, but when it
    comes to gchar or gpointer, that's just plain microsoft-style
    (think LPCSTR and LPCVOID...)
