Well I think I mentioned before no-one has gone thru and preformed an  
audit to ensure the usage of memory address is resolves to a pointer
which resolves to an unsigned integer, then looked at all the places  
where someone is doing math or compares on that value.

To contribute a bit I'll undertaking looking at the mac carbon VM and  
put in the proper variable defs  in the osx carbon support code.
