i tried to account for that here:
> If the server doesn't enforce a specific limit, then the field may be set to 0.
> This implies the server relies on the OS to enforce limits (e.g. available
> memory or file handles), and such limits might be dynamic.  The client SHOULD
> take care to not try to exceed reasonable limits.

i think that covers it ?

wrt 32bit vs 64bit, i couldn't imagine a situation where a single
packet would hit that, but i guess if we're laying groundwork for a
protocol that will stick around for decades, might as well plan for
then rather than regret it.
