I just wanted to mention that there are file systems out there without path restrictions.

>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: dfs
>    Affects Versions: 0.5.0, 0.4.0, 0.3.2, 0.3.1, 0.3.0, 0.2.1, 0.2.0, 0.1.1, 0.1.0

> I was trying to create a deep hierarchy of directories using DFS mkdirs().
> When the path to the leaf directory became long (~20000) DFS was still able to create
> directories with these names, but UTF8 started truncating long strings resulting in
> incorrect logging of namespace edits. That later crashed the namenode during restart,
> when it was trying to reproduce file creation logged in the edits file with truncated
> UTF8 is deprecated now so we will have to replace it with Text.
> With UTF8  we should enforce a pathname limit of 0xffff/3 = 21845
> With Text it is going to be larger. Not sure what the exact number is.
