All 64-bit platforms have 64-bit time_t, so that covers most of the
possible problems.  Even on 32-bit platforms, the major filesystems
use 64-bit times, so the data is good to go on 64-bit systems.

And in theory it should be possible to change time_t to unsigned, and
get another two-thirds of a century out of it...
