To be honest, I suspect much more than this doesn't work on 16 bit 
targets, but sure in principle we can change that. Let's ask Ed if he is 
willing to spend again time on this old work of him... (imho, all those 
hard coded iteration numbers don't really look right in the first place, 
just imho)
