Intuition still works... :-)

My guess is that it is an evolutionary thing, just remains from the past where was a distinction between long and int.

comment How do I assess whether my expectations to the interviewees are adequate?
The 3rd paragraph is extremely important for small teams. The larger the team, the less critical one programmer's ability is. In many small companies (say, small strt-ups), a position is filled by literally a single person. In this case, the wrong developer can really destroy the ability of the whole company to deliver in time, or at all.

@BillyONeal - to me, it is the ability to justify your choice. As long as the programmer can give coherent and sensible explanation for why he check / didn't check / use assertion / whatever, then it means that he is an intelligent person who can think (which is pretty rare, if you ask me). This kind of guy can easily learn a new methodology, dictated by the new workplace.
