Huh??? That's a new meaning of "powerful"... If you mean "more compact"
I would certainly agree (base-10 instead of base-256), but if _that_ becomes
a problem with partition tables... IIRC, OP proposed 4096 bytes for table.

Again, if somebody really can't check if array of characters is a valid
representation of integer or can't implement conversion of known valid
one to its value... What the devil are you doing here?
