They don't ease porting except in very limited cases. PLEASE, just use
int unless there's a specific reason you need a specific size. The
"fast" types should only be used when you know you need _at least_ a
specific size, but more is ok, and only when that size is >32 bits
since we can always assume int is at least 32 bit (not that C requires
it, but everything will fail if this is not true).
