I ment, I don't want to register names for 'longint'.
I want to register names for integer types like
type TColor = -$7FFFFFFF-1..$7FFFFFFF;

This is not an internal compiler type and has a typeinfo of its own.
But with the current implementation I can't register anything for it.

I hope the typeinfo function will improve eventually. For now the workaround can do the job.
