In the interest of moving towards a GDAL/OGR 1.8 release I have done some
work on RFC 31 - 64bit integers for OGR fields and FIDs.  I've updated the
RFC itself somewhat, and done a preliminary implementation of the RFC on
my own system with a reasonable level of success.

I'm asking for additional comment on the RFC at:


The implications and complications of this update are greater than I had
first anticipated and even with what I've done so far I'm sure lots of
additional glitches will come out of the wood work.  Unfortunately, this
is not funded work for me so it is hard to apply the level of effort that
I would like to it.  In short, I'm a bit nervous about implementing this
RFC though now that I've sunk 2-3 days into the prototype work I'm hesitant
to throw it away either. :-)

Thoughts welcome.
