That "long long" even exists is a travesty.

What are we going to do when 128-bit ints become common in another couple
decades? Call them "long long long"? Or if we redefine "long long" to be
128-bit ints and "long" to be 64-bit ints, will a 32-bit int be a "short
long" or a "long short"? Maybe 32-bit ints will become "short" and 16-bit
ints will be a "long char" or "short short"? Or is a "short short" already
equal to a "char"?

All we need are "int float" and "double int" and the entire C type system
will be perfect! </sarcasm>

lcc-win32 supports 128 bit integers. The type is named: int128

Planned is support for 128 bit constants with:

i128 m = 85566677766545455544455543344i128;

The 256 bit integer type has already been designated "long long long long spam and long".

'nuff said.
