	The union additions and the strtoul(3) update are no brainers.
I use strtoul(3) in all my number parsing code.
	u64 work is expensive on x86, but I guess that doesn't matter
given this context.  For portability's sake, I'd really like to see a
g_ascii_strtoull() and a g_ascii_strtoul().  Why both?  Because then
strtoul() is always there without having to do strtoull() (outside of
