Lack of interest Increase addon_id field

Yeah I completely agree with this.

I think it's good practice for the add-on ID to match the directory structure from the library directory, e.g.

Add-on ID: YourAddOn
Would have its files located in: library/YourAddOn/

As a more practical example of where this is useful, I have been doing a heck of a lot of work for AVForums. To be organised I have been using AVForums_ as a prefix and locating files like this:

Add-on ID: AVForums_YourAddOn
Files located in: library/AVForums/YourAddOn/

Most desired add-on IDs wouldn't exceed the limit, but sometimes they might.

Increasing to 50 should be a good compromise.

140 max should settle for everyone.

That's as long as a XenForo comment on user profile or as long as a Twitter post (same length, 140).

Common (intuitive) length most people are use to typing out to describe things.
