That may not be practical. Internally
-histogram- sets up a table, and so limits
on that may bite. As implied, it is a consequence of
what you asked for with the -discrete- option and
your data that -hist- thinks it is drawing lots
and lots of bars, even if most of them are zero.
As it happens, -spikeplot- uses a very different
approach and the results look very similar.
Personally, I'm pleased that -spikeplot- has
some remaining purpose.
