people's feeling are with regards to the auto keyword.
I prefer types spelled as it helps to understand the code. In
and then I can understand the code. In C# I saw surprising abuse
like `var id = 0L;` - to think someone would go to such length
only to insist on type inference.
In part this can be due to unreasonably difficult to spell types
like ptrdiff_t, so I try to design my code in a way that it's
easy to spell types.
