    I don't know if it is true, but someone recently told me that even the
    Linux kernel will use 32-bit pids if you happen to create more than
    32000 processes at the same time.

Does that really mean all 32 bits get used?

There are not a gigantic number of places in the code that call
process-id.  But at least one prints the pid in decimal, so using a
cons cell would not work well.

Using a float would work.
