Indeed... I've been trying to work out a sane way of doing this for

Is 16-bit -- ouch. It really needs to be 32-bit. I don't get how this
occured, glibc uses 32-bit pid_t everywhere except here.

My best solution so far, is break this API before it gets too
ingrained in code out there (which sucks, because this will break
sybase, which rocks).
