How do you think about to replace any "int" and "long" for parameters like "pos", "len" or "destlen" by the data type "size_t"?

Examples:

I think it is good. Do you have an idea for list up the points of replace?

I'm sorry - I do not really understand your reply on this issue.

I have pointed already to places in the source files which might need further clarification on better data type selection.

I'm grateful for your suggestion, but I guess your meaning isn't correct only the "Example" points.

Do you have any idea for find *all of the place* that need to change data type?

I do not know the source files good enough to definitely say in all places where negative values are really acceptable for integral data types. I have got the impression that there are still more update candidates in the source code where unsigned types will improve software correctness.

I hope to get a clarification on the interface design from the core software developers.

Disputed points and side-effect are too many, and team members doesn't have enough time to fix this issue.

How can the concerns about potential side effects be clarified?
