Which was the whole point of the suggested upate - MSVC does support 64-bit
int's it just calls them __int64 not long long, same with Borland C++
Builder, the code I suggested uses:

typedef __int64 int64_t;

in those cases.

Nothing particularly radical.

BTW this is the whole point of int64_t surely - it allows us to have a
platform independent 64-bit integral type regardless of what the compiler
calls it (long long, long, __int64 or whatever).
