Comment #1 on issue 3670 by chip...@gmail.com: scmtools repository unique
constraint path:local prevents using mysql 5.5 with wide charsets
That error isn't about the key length. Actually, that error is old and the
specific case it was referring to was fixed long ago. We just never removed
I don't think we can support utf32 or utf8mb4. Is there a reason plain ol'
utf8 can't be used?
The reason is that MySQL's design involving key lengths is completely
busted. It does not care about the character length of fields. It will deal
exclusively with byte length. That means that the more bytes required per
character, the closer you are to hitting that error. We cannot ensure that
our key lengths will work for anything higher than utf8.
