Hey all, was debugging a new node im making and some discussion on IRC
lead me to find this:


Note that unsigned long, and long are truly DIFFERENT sizes on Win64
vs Linux64/FreeBSD64/OSX64

Not sure if anyone else ran into a problem like this, but I thought it
was worth bringing up to everyone that may be expecting something a
certain size (for filling out a struct or whatever), it's different
depending on the platform you compile on.
