It would be quite easy to make an AosFS2 that supports longer file 
names.  You'd just have to be careful to keep the two formats separate, 
e.g. renaming the file system modules and creating a new version with 
different name size constants.  You'd also need modified file system 
tools (AosFSTools) to format AosFS2 partitions.

But if you really want directories, just use the FatFS.
