8 characters between directory
separators. This is still a pain, but it's better than 8 characters for
the entire filename!
I don't think imposing a directory structure on installers will go over
at all well.
Beyond that, if the filenames themselves are not unique (i.e.,
independent of what directory they're in), I bet most TeX
implementations won't be able to deal with them. web2c won't, anyway.
