Side note: IIUC glibc now has something working and distributions like
Debian are now trying to figure out how to go about incorporating it
(since it expands time_t to 64bit on 32bit systems, forcing an
ABI-incompatible change which can create more ABI-incompatible changes
in libraries that include a time_t in their API).
