Not sure if this has been discussed before, has anyone been thinking about
the effect of a 64-bit time_t on the zoneinfo file?  It seems that just
substituting a set of 8-byte values for the transition times could result
in really big zoneinfo files, particularly when you consider that there are
many more possible transition times.
