Do you happen to know the opinion of the glibc people on this topic?

Sorry, no. I imagine it's come up.

I would suggest ptrdiff_t rather than ssize_t, as the latter was 'int' on some old 64-bit platforms whereas ptrdiff_t never had that problem, and Glibc malloc now prohibits objects larger than PTRDIFF_MAX bytes.
