  I am working on an idea for more than the 32 bitvectors, with help
of an array.  It's not a small process, but worth it I think.
Hopefully I get time this coming weekend to test, what I have done 
so far.
  The obj files will be a job tho, since it got to read more than on
bit field.  But then again, an obj. converter is always good to code
and have for later use :)
