What about people that pick pieces from the code and use it in different
environments?  Like e.g. using the networking code to fix bugs in legacy
machines' tcp/ip implementations.

In a word, I'd hate this to happen.

BTW, long long isn't a good argument, as it is (or should be?) used only in
port-specific code, or by the way of a typedef (like int64_t).
