I am expecting that the type restructuring/adding will take a little while.
There's a lot of additional support needed, at least one environment needs
to provide a long-limited types environment according to POSIX requirements.

Right now, given the fact that there's no implicit limit I've stuck to 64
bit in lieu of future filesystem work which will move us from 32 bit to 64
