[webkit-dev] unsigned vs unsigned int

Hi there,

I was telling people to use "unsigned" instead of "unsigned int", as I
have been told that was the preferred style before, but apparently
that is not in the style guide.

The question is, should it be?

A few greps in the code:

"unsigned" -> 18406 occurrences.
"unsigned int" -> 1721
"unsigned i =" -> 1548

It does in fact seem to be the preferred style.
