The 14-character filename limit disappeared from HP-UX about 1989 (I
think it was coincidental with the move to POSIX, but I don't recall
for sure -- it may have been related to a new AT&T release -perhaps
System V, Release 2).  That was over 12 years ago.  Should we concern
ourselves with supporting 12-year-old technology when MAXNAMLENGTH or
whatever it's called went to at least 256 characters many moons ago?
