Okay, so it has been occupied recently, unfortunately (but for a good purpose! Smile

My choice of flag 50 was based on revision 3.1 of the manual as newer versions are only available as printed manual, AFAIK.
It's best to check the source code, such things might even have changed since version 3.3 was released.

It's unfortunate that newer versions of the manual aren't available as PDFs, and preferably in the original editable format as well. That's pretty much the only component of this project that isn't open-source. Walter would know the reason, perhaps there's some contractual obligation with the publisher.

I have the spiral bound printed manual and while it's nice and well made, most of the time I use the PDF because it's just so much faster to navigate: you can search and click on links.

Sure, but I was living under the impression that we are limited to 64 flags for some reasons. If we can extend UState beyond that, things would certainly become easier (also in other areas).
As far as I can see, you'd need to sacrifice something in order to increase the number of internal flags. Some of the user flags would be an obvious choice as there are way more of them than most people would ever need.
