I seem to think there is a better way to do hex conversions, but as a
obvious solution I tried tonumber().
But tonumber uses signed longs to do the conversion so
tonumber('ABCC41B4',16) == 2147483647 (hint: it should be 2882290100)
since strtol returns LONG_MAX if the number overflows.
So can we change to strtoul instead (are people really using signed
numbers in other bases?).
