[ENH] OptionalWarningForMacOSFileNameLength-dgd

Hi, I'll point out this isn't quite correct. The check is for

Preferences warningForMacOSFileNameLength and: [nameToUse size > 31]

Technically the check should be

Preferences warningForMacOSFileNameLength and: [nameToUse size >  
FileDirectory default class maxFileNameLength]

Although somehow I think you could remove the Preferences  
warningForMacOSFileNameLength since it could be a generic check for  
file name size violations based on the underlying file name size rules.  
Right now all platform specific paths names are 255, excluding the  
classic mac file path names. But you never know if someone will  
introduce a platform say with 64 character restrictions. This would  
make this a generic check versus a mac specific preference.
