Yes, I'm hitting it daily and having to work around it.  Given the
increase in space and time of computing resources, it's now practical to
have +inbox containing thousands of emails and have a script that picks
them into many different sequences in reasonable time instead of having
many different folders.

Going to the next power of two would be useful, although I suspect a
different arrangement where `pick first' doesn't have a long bitfield of
mainly 0's would be better in the long run.
