Path too long

description

Hi,

when I add the TOPAZ nuget package for Azure Storage I end up with the dll in a folder similar to

packages\EnterpriseLibrary.TransientFaultHandling.WindowsAzure.Storage.6.0.1304.1\lib\NET45/Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.TransientFaultHandling.WindowsAzure.Storage.dll

That is 178 characters, what is about 2/3 of the maximum allowed path length in windows. That imposes a serious restriction on the folder structure that can be used for the project under development. Is there any chance you can shorten that name so that it still leaves room for development folder structures. Sure, we can subst or mklink, but that's additional effort that could easily be avoided. Since you already coined the abbreviation topaz, why not go for that?

Thanks and regards
Florian
