In general, we do have to be careful to avoid using "long long" in the
bindings. In the specific case of r16914, the usage of the "long long"
typemap is OK, because the "long long" typemap is converted by SWIG
into code which uses the "apr_int64_t" and "PY_LONG_LONG" datatypes.
Ivan Zhakov has tested the Python bindings on Windows, and confirmed
that they pass tests.

TODO: It'd be much better if we renamed the "long long" typemap to
"apr_int64_t", because this would make it clear that the typemap is
portable across operating systems.
