I remember. However, a) in 2.5 years we've had 4.5k revisions, so assuming linear progression, that's a significant number of years before we hit that limit, and b) if we hit that limit, we can surely just increment the major or minor version number and add some code to subtract 65536 from the build number at that point, and still have it turn out ok...?

I would expect the limits to change once MSI gets ported to 64 bit...?
