SubjectRe: Using unsigned int for loop counters - better performance for Architectures - urban hacker legend?
I don't know about unsigned int; but looping down to zero should be 
faster on many architectures, as they automatically test for zero (or
negative) on decrement. Counting up requires an additional test.
