Comment (by joel.sherrill):

 I don't see the value of adding helper methods. Much of the code impacted
 would have to be altered to use them. Internal code using 64-bit time_t
 should just work. The issue is where there are interfaces to other
 representations or storage systems.

 Analyse the cases Chris mentions, ask on newlib if there are any known
 places to be concerned about, and just try it.

 Adding use of non-standard helper functions on a standard type is just
 extra work.
