Yes, you're right, but that's another issue.
When the documentation is vague and I need details I look at the 
implementation for the platforms I'm interested in. That's how I 
discovered that the GetTickCount64 emulation under Windows before 
version 6 should *not* be used (or used by limiting it to DWORD values, 
but then it's better to just use GetTickCount).
