I had an objection as previously stated -- namely that

stdint.h is therefore not nice.

FWIW, it's kind of pointless in that case; <cstdint> exports it into the std:: namespace rather than the root namespace, so using stdint types still don't work.

It again comes down to: for headers exported to userspace we *have* to use double-underscore types.
