Well, if this were a performance-critical case then yes, but it isn't.
I'd just as soon keep the code compact.  Besides, typecmds.c isn't
really directly aware of this issue: the reason it's EnumValuesCreate's
bailiwick is that the latter is what's truncating the strings.  If we
ever wanted to change the behavior, it'd be better to keep the
knowledge more localized.
