This patch contains the following changes.

	- Use 'bool' instead of 'int' for booleans.
	- Use 'size_t' instead of 'int' for 'sizeof' return value.
	- Some style fixes.

Normally I would let a patch like this sit in my mailbox
for a week and then delete it.
That is evil! ;)
But this time I'll just let you know up front that I
don't see much value in this patch.  It is not a clear
improvement to replace int's with bool's in my mind and
the other changes are just whitespace changes.
Is it not an improvement to distinct booleans from actual values? Do you use integers for ASCII characters too? It can also avoid some potential bugs like the 'if (i == TRUE)'... What is wrong with 'size_t' (since it is unsigned, compared to (some) 'int')?
