The latest commit says

    All modern systems, even msvc, have the C99 stdint.h integer types.
    Replace the guesswork with typedefs using these types.  This fixes
    numerous warnings on some system where both long and long long are

and replaces e.g. the following attrocity

  #if SCHAR_MAX==127 && SCHAR_MIN==(-128)
  typedef signed char sox_int8_t;
  #elif CHAR_MAX==127 && CHAR_MIN==(-128)
  typedef char sox_int8_t;
  #error Unable to determine an appropriate definition for sox_int8_t.


  typedef int8_t sox_int8_t;

But why typedef standard int types such as int8_t at all?
Why does the code use sox_int8_t (being a typedef of int8_t)
instead of simply using int8_t, as defined in stdint.h?
