The ‘__atomic’ builtins can be used with any integral scalar or pointer type that is 1, 2, 4, or 8 bytes in length. 16-byte integral types are also allowed if ‘__int128’ (see __int128) is supported by the architecture.
This also implies that APR create a 128bit Int type, which we don't (yet).
Bumping to support 64bit was easy and logical.. bumping to 128 requires more legwork and is a bit more "intrusive" ;)
+1 to the theory though.
