Hello everyone!

I'm coming from OPNsense and already asked my question there:
https://forum.opnsense.org/index.php?topic=23972.0

Franco (Lead-dev OPNsense) directed me to you, as it seems to be a limit in the
pf-code.
https://github.com/opnsense/src/blob/17a61782d3b8d86464d5bdc38483ee8a0ac6a4f9/sys/netpfil/pf/pf.h#L185

Is there any reason why aliases are limited to 32 characters in total? Could it
be increased or will it break code/performance?

We have a use-case which would require more than 32 chars in the alias name,
probably double (64) for good measure.

Thank you in advance and thank you for your continuos work on FreeBSD!
