 uintptr_t implies four tasks:
- verifying uintptr_t is supported in the C compilation environments on (at
least) the 5 standard platforms we have (and the FreeBSD folks would like
to know too, and RiscOS).
- adding uintptr_t support in Slang's type inferrencer
- going through all the VMMaker methods that declare C types, identifying
which type declarations should use uintptr_t and modifying them to do so
- going through all the platforms source for all functions that take
pointer arguments (hundreds) and modifying them to use uintptr_t instead of
long (the last default)

That's at least half a week's work.  Do you volunteer?

best, Eliot
