I noticed the other day that the BigInteger converter is doing its own parsing
of hexadecimal strings at
I'm pretty sure it's not working for most large number cases, including a few
in the docs for that class like 0xFFFFAC. Before I open another jira ticket
though, can you tell me why we're reimplementing hex string parsing instead of
using BigInteger("somehexstring", 16)? It's cool if that's an oversight but I
want to make sure I'm not missing some subtle use case.
