64 or 128-bit numbers

I would like to see 128-bit numbers handled in AutoIt3. 128-bit numbers would be useful as a structure container for GUIDs. you could map out a $tagGUID onto a single 128-bit number and then simply use it, I would hope.

64-bit numbers are useful because the filesystem of windows uses 64-bit addressing. AND, if you request disk space from windows using GetDiskFreeSpaceEx() (for WinNT systems with kernel32.dll) or its fallback GetDiskFreeSpace() (for win9x/me systems), the former uses PULARGEINTEGER (ULARGEINTEGER) which is a structure that can be addressed using .QuadPart as a 64-bit unsigned integer.

64-bit integers are useful because of their sheer size/range. you can do PLENTY more with 64-bit numbers. make better calculators, etc. 128-bit would be even better.
