according to my test migrations there are about 350,000 changesets in
the full OSM history. so they might not grow as fast as all that. if
we assume exponential growth as a worst-case scenario then we won't
hit 2^32 changesets for about 6 years, which should be enough time to
go back and change the software ;-)
