Yep; that's a challenge, until we break the glass and make a
completely new class file format that integrates a var-int format.
(My favorite is UNSIGNED5.)

But we can (and should) put off the day of glass-breaking
by tactical moves like CONSTANT_Group, which will allow
you to express a single sequence of constant tokens of
any length, without (necessarily) using up indexes in the
main CP.
