While the project has been taking a mighty long time to get
to "5.x-stable", I do think we should make it to "6.x-stable"
before 2038...

I do wish we could go for 64-bit times.  However, I do not
agree that we can just keep tossing in major API changes
to the 5.x branch.  We will never get to 5.x-stable if we
constantly add major API changes to the 5.x branch.
