Depends what patch level, more recent patche levels use short int for
the type (max number of 2^15 = 32768)  and typedef the vnums and rnums
to this, search structs.h for obj_vnum and the typedef for it.  This
does mean that you might get a few odd things happening with editors and
snippets that expect a short int (and a max zone of 326) (not sure
though as I've not done it)
