Username length limit

The new username length limit will be 22 characters. I will notify all people with usernames greater than 22 characters in length and give them 24 hours to change them after that I will truncate them to that length.

[ambrus]: Corion: my guess is to first read the start of the file to check what format it is out of two or more possibilities, then rewind it and handle it differently depending on the program
[ambrus]: s/program/format/
[Dumu]: ambrus: it's about testing a file for being multiple possible file formats
[ambrus]: In particular, you might want to detect the encoding of a HTML file from between utf-16 versus ascii-based and encoding given in a META tag.
[ambrus]: Dumu: it should probably be safe to change the encoding if you rewind first with seek $file, 0, 0 first
[Dumu]: ambrus: good guess. I'm trying to contribute to a CPAN module, and the existing tests assume they're looking at text files
[Dumu]: ambrus: thank you. I was seeking afterwards. I'll seek first.
[jedikaiti]: Hello, Dumu!
[Dumu]: hello again jedikaiti! thanks everyone today for being in the monastery!
