Well, of course, THAT one will be relatively easy to fix provided
someone perks up now.. Just declare the thing to be a 64 bit integer
and put off the problem for another couplea hundred years.

I doubt most computers will have a 35 year MTBF today. The only issue
is databases that have a half life of something like 60 years.
