Yes, so it shouldn't matter wether you specify them signed or not. gimp
will not run on machines with one-complement integers ;)

I do depend on signedness of my magic constants in one filter, but if gimp
would be changed to use strtoul for _hex_ constants everybody could be

Hey people! Does anybody think that using strtoul for hex constants breaks
anything? If not I'll change it next week.
