What is a stretch is 32K trees of 32K nodes, which is what you need if

Eric says that we need to accommodate half a million RBridges.
Half a million tree of half a million nodes is unfeasible.
If we want to support such a large number of Rbridges, we need to modify
the current Trill proposal, reducing the number of trees that need to be
