Not according to folks interpretation of our versioning policy, it seems
this patch must wait for 2.0.0.  You would be breaking ABI for anyone
building against a 32 bit APR build.

If folks can prove APR 1.0.0 forward have promised that it's internally
always built _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 then I'd entertain changing the type,
(an external included-headers apparent bug as opposed to an internal bug)
but again according to folks interpretation of the versioning policy,
this would have to be based on apr_off_t or a type we already declare,
as we cannot add an apr_ino_t until 1.3.0.

Other opinions?
