It's been past time that I (or someone else) unify all the particular
types, constants, and macros pertaining to the double-long types.
Furthermore, since the double-long and the __int64 types are mutually
exclusive (AFAIK), the unifying items should shadow the __int64
family instead when that's defined in lieu of the double-long types.
