Extend Natural Objectnames to 32 Byte

Natural Newbees are shocked, when they find out, that Objectnames in Natural are maximum 8 Bytes long. It is like DOS in the 90ties.

So Natural should allow Objectnames to 32 Byte (Natural for Open Systems),

An alternative would be, to extend the internal Objectname that exist for functions, subroutines and classes to all objects and make it available in Natural Navigator (it is allready) but also in the Ctrl Shift R Command to open an Object of the Project and also in the mapping view of the Natural Server (is not yet).
