    programmer mindset has also included such things as

    sizeof(int) == sizeof(*)

    and

    sizeof(long) == sizeof(*)


    And, just like what happened in these cases (well, it's still happening
    in the sizeof(long) == sizeof(*) case) people will learn.

    I'd love to see time64_t be a non-scalar type and force people to
    use time64diff(), time64add(), time64sub(), et al to extract the
    contents of it instead of the seductively simple approach of using
    scalars that we have now.
