> Good point about 62 bits, but I'm generally wary of implementing PN as a signed int. You'd have to check for < 0 in all sorts of places then.

Yeah, we do not need to check < 0 for things we receive, because the encodings don't allow you to transfer negative numbers. So I think use of -1 does not introduce complexity.
