another option to consider if you have long group names is
to use a hash (e.g. md5) of the actual group name as the
Spread group name and, if necessary, have your application
maintain a mapping between the two sets of names.

this allows arbitrarily long group names without having to
modify MAX_GROUP_NAME (otoh, you'll have to maintain the
mapping if you need it)
