Well, about 3-4 times now fresh imports were done, so we lost a lot of 
change history. Someone could probably recreate the bulk of it from the 
patches archive, but its not worth the trouble right now. Maybe eventually 
there will be an automated solution, but I'm not gonna mess with it until 
then :)

Btw, I have a complete fix for the warnings related to the long time_t 
that was posted on eggheads at . I'm just on a very slow computer (P166) and 
haven't finished test compiling it. I'll wrap it up maybe today or early 
this week and get it applied to 1.6, then merge a similar patch into 1.7.

Its odd no one reported these before, as I know they had to show up on 64 
bit platforms where time_t is long long. The fix I'm using may not be 
perfect either, but its what most developers recommend, and it sure beats 
having a long long time_t stuffed into a long int.

We really need to look into restructuring this whole mess and making the 
types better defined for 64 bit platforms. *Maybe* I'll work on this some 
in 1.7, which I guess would allow back-porting some of it into 1.6 as 
needed. I did some of this in -alpha, but it was _far_ from complete.
