Good point. I'd forgotten about CD's.
ISO-9660 level 2 and 3 limits are 32 characters
ISO-9660/Joliet extensions allows up to 64 characters
Browsing various web sites found by Google makes it appear most modern
operating systems support ISO-9660/Joliet. Would the ISO-9660/Joliet
maximum of 64 characters work for you?
(I just tried burning a CD with the current Boost CVS tree, and it did fine
on the filenames > 32 characters. But that's on a Win XP system that was
all new hardward and software within the last year.)
