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.
