I think it's ludicrous to give up functions which take sub-int arguments.
What's wrong with pid_t being a short?

I guess, AFAIK, there is no reason to limit the language for compatibility
with the few remaining systems that can't handle some ANSI compiler.  Do
there even *exist* pre-ansi-only machines big enough for netbsd?
