    Silence signed/unsigned comparison warning under DEBUG_LEAKING_SCALARS_FORK_DUMP
    We've already checked that the value is not negative, so just cast it
    to unsigned.

    Use SSize_t instead of ssize_t
    The ssize_t type is not required by any C standard, only
    POSIX. Notably, Windows does not provide it.

    Add Size_t and SSize_t to the default typemap
    size_t is portable, but ssize_t isn't, so make sure we have maps for
    the portable, metaconfig-provided ones
