      Description

      If you have more than 256 flags, you run out of 8-bit characters, so you have to use another flag type to get 64k:

      • UTF-8: 16-bit BMP flags
      • long: two-character flags like 'AB'
      • num: decimal numbers like '10234'

      But our implementation for 'long' is wrong, it encodes as 'A+B', which means it cant distinguish between 'AB' and 'BA' and causes overgeneration.
