Yes, that 8.3 restriction might be the worst that was ever made. But even 
unices of that time allowed only 14 character long filenames.

I think you should not care about that restriction. There are ways to get 
around that (using mint, magic, vfat partitions, emulators...). And for the 
units, its not a problem in most cases (i guess all that fcl-* stuff will 
never get ported to Atari).
