Should "pos" be unsigned? I don't think it matters much in practice (as
long as it's not negative, the results are well defined by the standard,
and this clearly will be between 0 and 40). But it seems funny that we
consistently use unsigned in the rest of the caller and then implicitly
convert to signed here.
