This is the same that I said: "renaming is cost free" if it is done
together with the type change.  Martin was right that there is cost
associated with any change.  The benefit of "completeness" for a
specialized build would not justify even having this discussion IMO.
On the other hand since the type change needs to be done in order to
make the code correct on a 64 bit platform and compile without
warnings with gcc,  a patch is needed anyways.  Since we are already
paying the cost of change, renaming is free.  There is no disagreement
between you and me here.
