Antoine Pitrou <pitrou at free.fr> added the comment:
Fixing this is much easier than Victor's suggestion, we just have to ignore the higher bits of the timestamp (that is, store it modulo 2**32). This is enough for the purposes of testing the freshness of a pyc file.
And by avoiding modifying the pyc format, we can also ship the fix in bugfix releases.
