        Speaking about old SGF programs: personally I would not mind at all, if
        long property names broke old SGF applications. It would lead to people
        updating their applications (which have fewer bugs - I hope). Of course,

        Go ahead and use long property names. SGFC has an artificial limit at
        about 100 letters for property names :-)
