Keen to go _ExtInt? LLVM Clang compiler adds support for custom width integers

Any custom width?

For desktop / mobile programming a 13 bit int isn’t very useful. But having 128, or 1024, or 25,000 bit integers supported directly in the language, that would be nice for some people. So I’m all for it.

Obviously some changes for compilers needed. I wouldn’t want to have to use long long long long long long int.
