yeah my first guess was they were using double longs, but soon realized 
that was impossible. i'm familiar with structure bitfields, i think the 
concept guru/pythe/fred was talkin about was the char array stuff... 
shrug, then again, they're pretty dead as far as coding goes nowadays 
anyway, heh ;)  i'm not sure using char arrays fer the storage is such a 
great idea for a base-code. it seems a little too heavy for most new imps.
