I think that a long string variable would be interesting and worthwhile.
After all, the only reason a normal string is limited to 255 characters is
because of the length byte. If we had a long string variable, which would
permit a two byte length, then we could have strings up to 65K+. This would
be similar as having an integer or a long integer declaration. Actually,
it's not that much different than the present &ZTEXH&.
