  I think it means that most OSes and processors that people run MUDs
off of are 32 bit (windows, most verions of unix, ect). Some servers with
the right OS are capable of 64 bit integers, which means your bitvectors
used can be 0 - 63, if the platform supports it, when some are 16 bit
signed integers because of older OSes (win 3.1, dos, ect).
