No, just back out the size_t -> ssize_t change - if it doesn't make sense,
don't do it - simply blindly following standards, just because they exist,
is insane - that way the standards never get corrected to be sane, as (as
is their purpose) they're just specifying what "everybody" does and agrees
to - if we disagree, we have a duty to disagree completely, not just with
some "this isn't right but it is what POSIX expects" side noise...
