NASA 2-line elements and year 2000




Does anyone know if the NASA 2-line elements will work after the year 
2000? Currently it uses two digits to represent the epoch year. The 
source of most keplerian propagators adds 1900 to the epoch year to get 
the year in the right format. If the epoch year turns to 100 after 99, 
things will be fine. If not, things will break badly.
