Yes, I'd be symphatetic with a template based *implementation*, that used the
same names (interface) as of stdint.h
Using templates you could actually check if your implementation fits the given
architecture (using compile time asserts).
This would make it easier to port the code to new machines. I am not sure that
the C++ implementation should be bundled to the C implementation.
