Poking around the web I found that emacs guarantees 28 bits as a 
minimum precision.  For a while I did as you suggested, prefixing all 
subjects ids with 'id'.  But it's cleaner if I reinstall a 64-bit 
version of Arch.  From your experiments, I already know its 64-bit 
version of emacs supports at least 30 bits.

Thanks again for your help.
