A full ADT cannot be allocated on the stack... you don't know the
size.  You will need real functions apr_time_make() to actually
do pool allocations.

Otherwise you are kidding yourself that this is really opaque.

The other option is a transparent struct with one int64 member,
but I really suspect we are digging into the overkill territory here.
