Lint complaints about signed/unsigned conversions in the typical use
x->foo = savestring(bar, strlen(bar));
Is there any reason why we shouldn't change the type of savestring's
(likewise msavestring) second argument from int to size_t?
Also, since the above is the same as:
x->foo = xstrdup(bar);
Is there any reason why we shouldn't change it? It's a bit odd that
half the code uses savestring() and the other half uses xstrdup().
