Not on Windows, where apr_off_t is always 64-bit.

If anyone takes the time to make this a complete patch, please don't
introduce svn_offset_t. Use the existing svn_filesize_t. Yes, I know
that's unsigned, but we can fix that (i.e., either make it signed, or
tell svn_io_file_seek of we're seeking backwards or forwards from the
current position). But I don't want to see two different types.
