I am considering using Mono to port some Windows C# code to Mac OS X. This
code makes extensive use of Windows API's relating to files.

One area I'm concerned about is PATH_MAX.

>From some searches on google and looking at the source Mono path length
seems to be limited to 256/260 characters.

If the code is only going to be running on Mac OS X - is it possible to
increase this to 1024 characters?

Alternatively if not possible I guess I need to have some form of
abstraction layer for all file system operations?

I couldn't find anything already existing/being worked upon? Did I miss

Any advice would be most welcome thanks,
