Yep.  If yer machine has 32 bit longs (I would wager yes.) The highest bit
you can reference on a shift is (1 << 31) -- meaning shift 1 31 times to
the left, putting it into the 32nd bit slot.  If yer fortunate enough to
have larger longs, more power to ya.  In this case, it is the size that
counts :P.
