As much as I am in favour of 64 bit, but that is a red herring. 32bit
systems are perfectly capable of handling 64bit values. The problem
here is all the existing software which assumes that a time_t is 32
bit. Or have not been using time_t but (u)int32_t (if you're luck) or
int (if you're unlucky).
