Sounds good to me.

I seriously wonder why an intern __-namespaced macro needs to be portable
beyound all currently supported architextures. Maybe we could add another
clause to the ? selector and check for sizeof(unsigned long) >=
sizeof(const t) to make possible future failures very explicit - but that
should IMO be enough.

On the other hand, the idea of making this *evil* macro usable by C++
code makes me shiver. Plaese don't tell me bind11 or newer gcc will
need this!
