Default Save file size versus exponent

Save file size is almost proportional to exponent. There is a small amount of space used for constants regardless of exponent size. Based on fits to observed file size over a wide range of exponents (~1.4M to 1G), a very wide extrapolation is made to estimate file sizes that would be required for some very large exponents, up to M127 as an exponent.
File systems' max file size would become limiting at ~67 bits, but run time becomes limiting much lower. Gpu ram size also imposes a limit.
