Moving to two's complement sign representation


We propose to implement the change to abandon ones complement and sign-and-magnitude representation from C. Main efforts are made to maintain interface compatibility with C++’s recently voted changes, that is to ensure that value and object representations are exchangeable. This is a follow-up to document N22181 which found positive WG14 support to make two’s complement the only sign representation for the next C standard.
