Depends: in the other solution, this is remedied by making ei_padd
template in the scalar type, so the first is the specialization for
int and the second is the specialization for short.

But yes that becomes a little cumbersome, that's what i meant when i
said that if that solution is too cumbersome then prefer the other.
