longer blocks

Is the reason the non-bitslice clients can only use 2^30 size blocks
a simple thing, like they simple won't request larger ones, or does
the code only allow for a 30 bit counter or something?

Anyway, why doesn't somone write a proxy server that requests lots of keys
from the master server. The clients then connects to the proxy server and
uses its keys. When the proxy runs out of keys, it sends them all back to the
master server and gets a new set. Is there any technical reason why this
couldn't be done?
