I bumped MAX_STRING_LENGTH up to 24576 and the only thing that I noticed
that was different (other than having longer strings) was that the mud
used a little more RAM. Sorry, can't give you precise numbers, it was
about three years ago when I did this and I really don't remember what the
growth was like.

I looked through stock bpl17 code and I didn't see that it would cause any
need for a pfile conversion, but I would backup everything before doing
something like this just in case...
