digitalmars.D - std.experimental.logger logging function __LINE__ parameter type

I recently noticed that the type of __LINE__ argument in the 
std.experimental.logger functions is 'int'. Shouldn't the argument type 
be size_t since __LINE__ is type size_t?

Using DMD 2.090.0

Only if you intend to have files with 2 billion+ lines? But actually, it's probably good to change it. It works because it's known at compile-time, so VRP will allow the implicit downcast. -Steve
