[ros-dev] ULONG vs. SIZE_T

I've noticed that in the ReactOS source code, there are many places where a
parameter or structure is ULONG when it should really be SIZE_T. Using
ULONG instead of SIZE_T is not portable. It will be difficult to port
ReactOS to x64 and Itanium in the future because of this.
I think the project should stop the bleeding by requiring all new code to
make proper use of ULONG versus SIZE_T. This does mean going against the
documentation of native syscalls on the Internet, but it must be done
Of course, I'm not really part of the project...
