*TIMESTMP (B8) "overflow"

At 17.09.2042 the B8-Variable *TIMESTMP will be "full". In 23 year; compare it with the difference to year 2000. This variable is important.

Is there a plan to solve the problem? In coordination with IBM (Store clock)?

*TIMESTMP is use for time measuring and the computer would become faster and faster. Perhaps: increasing length, 1 byte before and 7 bytes after?
