  use int32 instead of uint32 for all values

Using uint32 for everything meant that negative numbers were not
available by default.  int32 for all values means that there's no need
to think about how to convert values from bytecode.  There are some
places where negative values can exist that don't make sense (e.g.
sizes), but watching for those is a straightforward validation issue.
