Sorry but I pretty certain we can't do that: code that uses long long does
so where we want to overload or specialise on a specific *type*.
boost::int64_t is a different beast entirely, and need not be long long (in
fact it isn't always), your patches would break Boost quite badly for
compilers where long long != int64_t.
