yes and no. if the names are too long to represent a 'common' directory
structure for the tests, it may be allowed to shorten them a little bit.
There will always be a length that breaks the compiler so you can't test
everything anyway.

In bbv1, we turned off the debug symbol for several tests that didn't
link otherwise. I remember, one was in boost.graph and the other in
spirit. I didn't verify if this has been translated to bbv2.

Of course, this would be an alternative solution!
