I think I meant suffix, actually. The issue here is that _any_ text name-based
key is going to cause problems here, as far as I know. The only way to get
around this would be to make the key length 262 bytes (255 bytes for the
maximum title length + 7 bytes for "gadget-"). But having such a length key
doesn't seem like the right answer. Instead, it probably makes more sense to
store these keys using an ID of some kind instead of the gadget name. That
should eliminate the possibility of duplicate keys and truncation.
