Both Issue #14758 <https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/14758> (Specify
that int and uint are at least 32 bits on every CPU architecture) and Issue
#9940 <https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/9940> (rename `int` and
`uint` to `intptr`/`uintptr`) call for RFCs.

So RFC https://github.com/rust-lang/rfcs/pull/161 summarizes those
discussions, explains the core issue of code portability to CPUs with
smaller address spaces, conceptions and misconceptions about int/uint,
what's a "default" integer type, and proposals including coding style for
integer sizing.

Let me know what you think.
