can't hurt, can it? =)

years is definitely questionable, but a 64-bit quantity for seconds
definitely leads to the possibility of overflow from 32-bit days and hours
variables. Not that it will happen while humans remain on the earth, but
that's the reason. I was trying to remain faithful to the spirit of the
64-bit apr_time_t.
