--- Comment #2 from Julian Seward <jsew...@acm.org> ---
In the trunk right now we have N_PRIMARY_BITS = 20, which according to the svn
log makes the maximum usable memory amount be 64G. That was done at end-Jan
2013 and should surely be in 3.10 and later.
Maybe we should bump this up to 21 bits, hence giving 128G usable memory on
64 bit targets? It would slow down startup a bit because that array needs to
zeroed out, and would soak up a bit more memory, but otherwise seems harmless.
Presumably at some point we can outrun (the ever decelerating) Moore's law
with this game ;-)
