C++ STL has size_t which is the natural word size of the machine.


you can keep int8/16/32/64/128 types and then keep a type
int_machinetype to represent the natural word size of machine.


The question to ask is: (if you want int to be default 64) how many
times do we create objects which have an integral value greater than
what can be represented by 32 bits.
