I've already asked on this list whether gssize is always sizeof(void*), 
but response wasn't 'yes, definitely'. (Although it is 64 bits here.)

AFAIK uintptr_t and intptr_t are guaranteed to be in pointer size - at 
least that's what I'm using in my patch.
Normally stdint.h defines these types, but as we can not guarantee that 
this header file is available, I've chosen to re-define these types in 
intps.h (which is part of my patch). Basically I've just mapped these 
types to g[u]int32/64...

So some (uintptr_t) cast should always work from pointer to unsigned 
intX without giving compiler warnings..

You're welcome,
