At one point it was a high/low 32bit integer structure, but after the code was 
looked at it was realized that 64bit integers would make it cleaner.

I looked at supporting platforms without 64bit using the old way, but I 
realized how ugly it would be.  It would have been a nightmare to audit and a 
nightmare to merge changes to.

Below is the event that removed 32bit integers and combined them into a 64bit.
If you can show me a clean way of implementing 32bit without destorying the 
reability of the code I'd be extremely happy.


Granted sftp client I believe never did have 32bit support.
