IIRC we currently have 32 chars max. for package names and 29 chars max. for
the catalog name where usually the package name should equal the catalog name
with the CSW prefix stripped and "-" replaced with "_".

I tend to relax the length of catalog names to whatever is necessary to give
Perl modules a 1:1 naming. The package name would be stripped to 32 chars, though.

Best regards
