This appears to be a bad assumption, BTW.  I see in the reiserfs documentation 
that it supports filenames of blocksize-64 -- and blocksize is 4KiB, by 
default.  HFS Plus allows 256 UCS-16 characters, which is 512 bytes.

So there isn't a perfect solution, but allocating 4KiB, on the heap, should be 
very, very safe at present.
