No... it's the maximum number of blocks per page. Depending upon how
the user has set the blocksize when they created the filesystem (in the
case of filesystems), the number of blocks we use per page might be 1,
2, 4 or 8.

It's long because a sector number is stored in it.

Evolution.
Enumerate the requirements.
Consider the interdependencies.
Calculate the probabilities.
Be amazed that people believe it happened.
