Well, I don't know for sure..
But I think introducing huge pointers implies introduction of some minimal
support routines, like [h]move(hugefrom,hugeto,hugelen), [h]fill(..), etc.
Implementation of such routines is quite different among "normalized real"
and "unnormalized common" modes, so going clean way sadly will require twice
effort (and a quadruple maintenance, I suspect.. );

WBR, Max.
