You mean "also", not "actually". :-)
So, from within Squeak you can either use UNC paths directly or provide a too long path string to the plugin, which will then convert it automatically to its UNC representation, if it isn't already in such a form.
Here are working examples:
PNGReadWriter formFromFileNamed: '\\?\C:\Tools\squeak_trunk\ffi-icons\ffi-union.png'
PNGReadWriter formFromFileNamed: 'C:\Tools\squeak_trunk\ffi-icons\ffi-union.png'
PNGReadWriter formFromFileNamed: 'C:\Tools\squeak_trunk\way-too-long-path\way-too-long-path\way-too-long-path\way-too-long-path\way-too-long-path\way-too-long-path\way-too-long-path\way-too-long-path\ffi-icons\ffi-union.png'

It actually forces them when necessary…
