 To say a bit more about this: Without some sort of restriction in place
 (either a `maxlength` on the markup or by doing proper server-side length
 validation), BP/WP allows blog creation with these long subdomains. But
 then the created blogs are inaccessible on some server setups (might be a
 32-bit thing, I don't know). So we really need to do *something*. I'd
 suggest this patch + some server-side checks.

 See also http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/21994. If this problem were
 fixed upstream (which would really be the ideal), we could just piggy back
 on it.
