What would you "expand" into if a platform has no 64bit integral types
though? A missing struct is easy to replace, but it is not true for a
missing internal type (in C).

As far as I can see, you would have to make the possibly-missing
internal type opaque (void*) and handle it via gb_t-like interfaces
only. I may be missing a better solution though.
