[p4] Changelist number limit

Well I believe it's a 32 bit integer at the moment - and by the time any
client gets anywhere close it will be 64 bit!
I don't think you need to worry! There are customers with millions but I am
not sure if anyone yet has tens of millions.
Meanwhile, the conversion process itself will take a chunk of time (most of
which will be digging stuff out of VSS). That will also take some validation
to ensure it goes smoothly...

Is there a upper limit to changelist numbers?  We are planning a conversion
from VSS to Perforce and development wants to bring over the complete
history (back to 1997).
