I have found in wine documentation that it is recommended to avoid long data
type, since it is different in Win64 and Unix64. This is reasonable,
however, is there some similar policy regarding size_t/ssize_t usage?
Those types are often defined as long type, so they could produce the same
problem with 64 bit. On the other hand, many standard functions expect or
return size_t values, so I guess it could be ok to use it in such cases. Is
there any advice/position on this?
