      Description

      We've found on HSC that we do need more than 16 mask planes, and hence it's almost certain that LSST will as well. We might as well make that change sooner than later.

      This will also make it a bit more important that we get FITS compression working (there is code to do this, but we don't know how recently we've used it).
