Support Unsigned Integer Types

I know it sort of breaks from the legacy Visual Basic vibe, but it'd be really nice if UShort, UInt, and ULong types were available directly. They don't necessarily need to change any existing functionality, and it would probably be acceptable to make them equate to their signed counterparts, which would let them function as drop-in replacements for existing component parameters, as the actual bytes are unchanged. It'd just help make binary work feel cleaner to developers.
