[Rd] R history: Why 'L; in suffix character ‘L’ for integer constants?

I'm just curious (no complaints), what was the reason for choosing the
letter 'L' as a suffix for integer constants?  Does it stand for
something (literal?), is it because it visually stands out, ..., or no
specific reason at all?
