WHY are we not simply using int64_t and be done with it.  So instead of 
doing it the right way (replacing all the int64 crap with proper 
values), are we simply going to keep chasing our tails???  Building our 
own non standard types is so '90s  (lol) and gets us in trouble time and 
time again......    Just saying.
