Right.  A libtiff64 could be created from libtiff.  If the TIFF fixes
can be hidden within libtiff64 then there shouldn't need to be much
change in dependent applications.  This approach at least assures that
open source applications, and proprietary applications which use
libtiff, can quickly incorporate TIFF64 support.

This doesn't help software which doesn't already use libtiff though.

If libtiff can be updated to support both classic TIFF and TIFF64 in
the same library, then dependent applications will gain TIFF64 support
for almost "free".
