PSPP 0.4.0 supports variable names up to 64 bytes (characters)
long.  This support has not been extensively tested.  Please
report any bugs in it that you may find, and as with all PSPP
bugs, we will make an effort to fix it as soon as we can.

PSPP 0.4.0 supports string variables up to 255 characters wide.
This is the same maximum width imposed by SPSS 12.  (Does SPSS 13
really allow longer strings?  I was not aware of that, but I
don't yet have a reference manual for that version.)
