Windows 10 now supports long file names. Can we?

CBFS Connect, as well as Windows, have supported long file names for years. The problem is that some applications have a hard-coded maximum length for the path; it's defined as MAX_PATH in the Windows SDK and all supplementary SDKs, and its value is 260 characters. So, if you start handling or allowing long file names, you might cause compatibility problems for those applications.
