probably it is a #define instead of a typedef so that some modifiers 
work like "unsigned" or whatever... or does that matter?

they seem to have it in winnt.h as a #define.  They also have it in 
basetsd.h, but only for the _WIN64 case!  wierd -- even wierder, AFAICS 
they use it before the #define it anyhow, and before any other 
#includes in basetsd.h....

so maybe wchar pulls this in via windows.h somehow?  I don't get it 
either, maybe there are more places it's #define'd out there that I'm 


"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things;
the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic
feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much
worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing
to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own
personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no
chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the
exertions of better persons than himself."
