Details:

We discussed already when editor was in development that we may eventually
run out of unique packet numbers. We still have some space left, and there's
many ways to reuse packet numbers, but just to avoid any uglier solutions I'd
like to increase packet number space before this becomes a real problem.
Attached patch makes packet type 16 bit value (currently 8 bit). This is still
not very much tested, and anyway I'd like to commit it from the beginning of
the new cycle (soon after S2_4 branching) rather than
late in cycle that has used 8 bit types so far.
