Joris,

I don't see any compelling reason libtiff could not be made to support bigtiff
files smaller than 4GB on machines without a 64bit integer type.  I would
forsee the toff_t (and possibly tsize_t) types being 64 bits on platforms that
allow it and 32bit otherwise.  The code that reads the tags would need a
special case for non-64bit-int platforms to downcast the values and throw some
sort of error if there are any values that don't fit in a 32bit value.

While I imagine it will be some time till BigTIFF support catches on for
general use, I would not want to preclude it's use in all environments.

Best regards,
--
