I have to disagree.   I don't see how you can say that == is not okay,
but >= is okay.  That just doesn't make any sense.  Obviously, you
have to make some assumptions about sizeof(int), but that assumption
should be nothing more than "it should be big enough for these small
numbers that I'm using".
