I believe the problem is there was never a strict policy what header is
defining what symbols, including by proxy. That changed, breakage.
I like the idea behind CARDn & friends, but (u)intN_t is C99, and Xmd.h
doesn't seem to be so great either.
Let's hope X is C99 by the time memory models are overhauled again. Or
whatever is the master plan here.
