Yeah, I think this type of error in particular is a killer and
negates much of the supposed type protection of using an unsigned int.
My default behavior is to use an int except when:
a) you need the extra large values
b) you are working with bit arrays or other packed data structures
b) you specifically need a short or long because of hardware or other issues
