I guess we will have to go around adding "signed" everywhere, if
it's no longer the default.

Unsigned is a stupid, counter-intuitive default, and has been,

If this isn't the default, then "signed" is too much like "const"
and "volatile" and other "you can't ignore them or I will generate
bad code" keywords.
