We came up with an idea for this in the IRC channel:

We'll allow any number of digits (up to 32bits) but only the last
three will be used for the HTTP status code.

So you could for instance do
	return (synth(10001404));

and that would become a 404, but you get extra bits for your
own purposes.

Also, please notice that you have bereq to look at.
