Maximum ID for bucket?

I intend on consolidating frozen buckets from multiple indexers onto a long term archival machine. The goal would be to make this archival machine an "read-only" indexer, and have it serve all of the frozen buckets seamlessly to splunk users via distributed search.

Since we'd have $SPLUNK_HOME/var/lib/splunk/(indexhere)/frozen/ contain buckets from 5+ indexers, i was going to try to add a prefix/postfix to each bucketid added to the directory to ensure there aren't any collisions.

Does anyone know how large the bucketid's can be? How often the id's return to 0?

Bucket id are an integer, so the system limit is probably 2^31.
