Well, there was one limit on bitfields that I was not aware of that has helped me decide about changing to bitfields. They can not cross integer boundaries! That is, I can only have 32 fields in any bitfield structure. I thought it was unlimited, which would have been the overwhelming reason to switch to them. I guess I'll stick with bitvectors. Too bad, though, that could've been an excellent feature of bitfields. Thanks to all those who responded.
