Thanks, that makes sense. 16384 should be plenty, although there's actually no 
reason why it can't be really large. The term "bank number" in this case is 
slightly deceptive because it's really a "slot" for a Bank in the FS system. I 
can't see anyone loading multiple SF's in and having perpetual bank number 
conflicts, so set_bank_offset is practically always necessary, thus what we 
really are looking at are "slots", not "banks".

Well, good, this makes things much easier for me. Thanks!
