You can say the same about any other changes we will do as part of
adding CEDET to Emacs.  They all have been part of CEDET for many
years, but we still make those changes.

Emacs has certain standards that each included package needs to adhere
to.  Being 8+3 clean is one of them.

There's no problem with having very long file names in Emacs; we
already have quite a lot of them.  Only file names that clash after
8+3 truncation are a problem.
