I don't like it. I don't care if you use that scheme, but I don't want to
have to use it myself.

For many things it's trivial to get the type from the variable name (a
variable named "count" is surely *not* a pointer, but some plain integer
type etc) and for the others scrolling perhaps one screen up to look at the
declaration isn't too much. After all - if you modify some code you should
know it well enough to tell the types of the variables without thinking.
