| Basically, for numeric types, I chose the following numeric categories as
| suggested by the Standard:
| unsigned integral
| signed integral
| integral (= unsigned integral + signed integral
| + any integral types without defined 'signedness' (bool, char,
As this is an entry on the LWG issue list, could you tell me how do
you deem a type to be signed? Just it is written 'signed foo'?
This is an important question for 'char'.
