No hard limit; currently the median length (with the language code)
is 12 characters; the full list sorted by length can be produced
(in a UTF-8 locale) like

wget -o /dev/null -O - https://www.gnu.org/server/gnun/languages.txt \
 | sed '/#/d;/srpsko-hrvatski/d;s,\t.*\t,] ,;s,^,[,' \
 | while read l; do cnt=`echo -n "$l"|wc -m`; echo $cnt "$l";done \
 | sort -n
