They can conserve space, easier to work with than binary ones, if one
is corrupted, then the rest are still fine, etc, etc, etc.

The way bitvectors work is that you can only have 32 of them (up to
1 << 31) before blowing the limit on unsigned long integers.  That
means 32 affections.  Most people seem to want more than that.

Erm... Yeah.  Whatever.
