[Bf-committers] Expanding the layers in Blender

As mentioned in a previous post,bit fields to flag as layer numbers are no
good after you shift past 1<<31, so Blender's number of layers will never go
past 31 (which I have achieved) expanding Blender's layer count to 31 layers
using the present method in Blender's codebase.
I want to give Blender "at least" 256 scene layers.Lightwave,Maya and
others have 999.I have to load a layer number identification table that will
load "once" on Blender's startup in order to statically assign layer numbers
instead of assigning that many layer numbers "on the fly"every time a
function is called which is inefficient as regard code speed.
My question is, is there a module in Blender that initializes "once" on
startup so that I can ride that module or function to initialize a layer
table? If this doesn't exist, the only other thing is a header file with a
large number of definitions and large arrays that would repeatedly load on
If there are any other ideas as to how I can do this efficiently, please
Sorry about the previous message.forgot to change my email format.
