vector.size() returns a size_t, which on 64-bit platforms can represent
types values larger than those that can fit into an int64_t.  So to turn
your argument around, since it's theoretically possible to have a vector
with more items than an int64_t can represent, isn't it already worth it
to use size_t, which is an unsigned type?

That's not true on my platform.  I have 64-bit pointers so intptr_t is
64-bits, but the largest thing you can allocate is only 32-bits big so
size_t (and ptrdiff_t) are 32-bits.
