Follow-up Comment #2, bug #41672 (project octave):

I suspect that Matlab dropped the system-dependence of the float at some
point.  We can too.

As for integer types, I think it is pretty much universal now that short is 16
bits and int is 32 bits and on 32-bit systems, long is also 32 bits.  But on
64-bit systems, long is 64 bits on Linux systems and still 32 bits on Windows
systems.  Does Matlab really always force long to be 32 bits, even on 64-bit
Linux systems?  If so, I guess we have to do the same or I'm sure we'll
eventually get complaints about that difference.
