MS quirk 'o the day

[ #19869 ]
One weird thing smacked me when rewriting a bunch of C code to use OLE + WMI: the uint64 values are returned as *strings* instead of bigint's. Originally I thought this was a bug in the OLE extension, but not so it seems. In Perl you likely would never notice this, but it smacked me with Ruby, and I confirmed it with Python (which returns them as Unicode strings).

/me wonders how this came to be
