[Rcpp-devel] Rcpp::ListOf.size() returns signed int?

Minor implementation question -
As a learning exercise, I'm working through g++ warnings.  After
reading SO posts r.e. int vs size_t, I've set all variables that hold
or compare object size information to type std::size_t.  This fixes
compiler warnings for Vector.size(), which doxygen shows have return
R_len_t.  ListOf.size() appears the odd man out, returning int.  Is
there a reason ListOf.size() returns a (signed) int?
