Then we'd need to coordinate with Gnulib, which further complicates
maintenance for us.

I don't understand why this is needed, given that Tom published a
proposed solution for the issue.  If you are bothered by possible
run-time penalty for LP64 systems, we can use compile-time checks
instead of run-time checks.  So I really don't see any justification
for more elaborate schemes.
