I don't understand this ... I thought that the plan was that
g_atomic_int_<blah> would work on ints, precisely so that we
could fix our existing refcounts which are typically guint.

We don't actually support any sizeof(int) != 32 platforms as well, 
so changing guint => guint32 isn't actually ABI breakage,
