I'd like to discuss with someone the conditions on which this limit (and maybe others) could be removed. I have a patch for the 'ck-history --frequent' case which calculates the longest name length so column output is preserved, but that feels incomplete since it only handles the one case.

The ConsoleKit site is http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/ConsoleKit
with the mailing list at http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/ConsoleKit
I know there is some overlap with XDG, but that would give you best results for your inquiries.
