Just curious...

If EOF is 'int -1' (0xFFFFFFFF), then having is*( _unsigned_ int) will
solve the problem:
Programmer will need to explicitely cast values to unsigned int,
resulting in 0xFF for char -1 and 0xFFFFFFFF for EOF.

PS. I never have read the SUS, so don't shoot me dead... Just ignore
if inappropriate :)
