VSE: Can I zoom out to more than 32000 frames ?

I notice that I cannot zoom out to more than 32000 frames in the VSE. This is very uncomfortable when editing long videos. This limit seems not to be a technical limit, as it is possible by selecting a strip that is longer than 32000 frames and choose “view selected” from the menu.
How can I increase / bypass this limitation permanently without having to create a very long “dummy” strip just to trick the zoom function.

Dont think you can, sounds like something you need to take up with the devs as the strip size is set as a certain type of variable. I know the 32000 sounds familiar. Single precision integer maybe?
