Going 64-bit for the option flags in jumbo sounds right to me.  While I
do hope to come up with a better solution, I don't readily have one and
when I do I think it'd be best to implement it in core first.

When you implement this change, can you also move all of jumbo-specific
flags (those already allocated) to the high 32 bits (newly added),
thereby leaving the low 32 bits to core (for a few new options to be
added in core before we run into the same issue there)?

Thanks for asking!
