Plus the OP stated he needed a list. What's that list of ints for? Unless
this is benchmarking, they might be in need of an unordered list of ints in
which there are 10**9 different random values that need to have the
proverbial needle(or 2, or 3) in a hey stack found.

I thought there might be a reason, hopefully, other than trying to find the
max range you could count to.
