I once wrote >> and << operators for Microsoft's __int64.
IIRC, there were some things I didn't get quite right (e.g.,
ios_base::internal); but it works for both char and wchar_t.

Would it be OK to upload the source to the Boost file section?
(It might help library authors who need a 64-bit integer type
and I/O, and want to be portable to MSVC.)

If not, Jeff, send me your e-mail address (my company's e-mail
system won't show me); and I'll mail you a copy of the source.
