On the high side. I think I said (somewhat arbitrarily) that 150 bits was
getting close to the practical limit.

In any case, I wasn't trying to promote 1-D barcodes; I was just saying that
this particular ballot of legendary length could be handled with a 1-D
barcode if necessary.

I think the consensus was that 2-D would not cost appreciably more so we may
as well go with that.
