I was wondering --- if fpos_t and off_t are identical sizeof, and fpos_t
can do shift << or >>, that means fpos_t is also integral like off_t.
Can I then assume they are the same?

Yes, but I can't simulate ftello, so I then can't do SEEK_CUR. and if I
can't duplicate the entire API, I don't want to try.
