I agree. It makes sense to make it be a bignum.

To be clear on this, what are you doing?

I presume that this is a V4 signature, with signature type of 0 (binary
document), PKALG of 0 (no public-key algorithm), hash algorithm type of the
appropriate hash, no subpackets, two hash bytes that duplicate the
high-order octets of the hash, and then a single MPI containing the hash.
Is this correct?
