Well, sounds like a pretty good idea, but I know it will break
at least one piece of code I've written because I assume the
(measly) 32-bit counters have wrapped if the current value is less
than the last value read...)
Now, if someone wanted to go make sure all counters were 64-bit, then
that would be cool :)
Of course, I can probably figure a way to re-write my code...but
I can't think of a concise way offhand...
