SubjectLarge File support and blocks.
Date
It may not matter too too much, but blocks are being passed around as
'ints'. On the ia32 architecture, this implies a maximum of 512*2G->1T
disk size. Probably don't need to worry about this today, but in a few
years? Should we be changing the internal interfaces to use a long (or
a long unsigned -- why signed?) Maybe for 2.5/2.6 timeframe? Just
curious...
