No I mean it's only been tested on a machine with a 32-bit registers. It's
the integer manipulations I want to double check - there are some
expressions which could conceivably be optimized in a way that would fail if
64-bit registers are used - I believe they shouldn't do so if the standard
is strictly followed - but sometimes compilers can play a bit fast-and-loose
when optimizations are turned on. If necessary I have a fallback, but let's
see if there's an issue first.
