What's the maximum number of lives you can have?

The number-of-lives indicator in the top right of the screen never rises above 9, but I know the game keeps track of any additional lives you get because if you get another life when you already have 9 and then die, it will still say 9 until you die again.

Maybe it maxes out at 255? Or maybe... the programmers didn't expect anybody to ever get that many lives so it just wraps back around to 0 after that.

Anybody know?
