That shouldn't matter; can you explain where in the code the limit is
causing a problem? As far as I know, the code compares font glyph names
with those in the static table, so font glyph names longer than the
largest pre-defined glyph name should not cause any problem.

If that's not true, we should just fix the code; it's a bug that you are
masking by adding piles of data to the library.
