Comment #3 on issue 3670 by scmtools repository unique constraint path:local prevents using mysql 5.5 with wide charsets

Makes sense.

I wish this wasn't a problem, or that Django provided a mechanism for letting you specify a max key length, but neither of those things are really in our control. The bytes-based key length issue has bitten us so many times in the past, and has been many other developers out there. Unfortunately, the MySQL guys don't seem to care and won't budge on the issue:

I do believe there is a configuration argument for bumping up the key length on InnoDB, which may work for you, but the MySQL guys say you'll hit performance issues by doing so.
