So file ports now use the 64-bit API when available.  By "just for
fports", I think you referred to the fact that you were initially
planning to add `64' variants of all the methods that are part of
`scm_t_ptob_descriptor', right?

OTOH, would the latter be very necessary?  Can't we just someday break
the ABI and use 64-bit types in `scm_t_ptob_descriptor'?

In any case: thanks for working on it!  ;-)
