:I don't like this, but I'll fix it (a bit different).

    I think I might have removed size_t based on an incorrect understanding
    of the standard.  There was a pollution issue of some sort but, clearly,
    in retrospect, we have to put size_t back in.

    I recommend putting it back in using the _SIZE_T_DECLARED infrastructure
    similar to the other types.  Joerg, I'll leave that to you.
