IntInf and word operations

Does anyone here understand the discussion of representing IntInfs via two's
complement in the basis library spec? It makes no sense to me. I am trying to
understand the spec for Word.fromLargeInt, which requires that the IntInf be
(conceptually) represented in twos complement. But I don't understand what the
representation of an arbitrary precision integer in twos complement is. How
many bits do you use?
