Based on the positive feedback (and no negative feedback) so far, I've
replace the separate name and path size checks with a single maximum
path size of 207.
Since this was a long weekend for lots of folks in the US and Canada, I
realize a killer argument against the change could surface in a few
days. But I need to clear stuff off my do list this weekend, since I'll
be traveling next week. We can always revert.
