Live image creation tools use the iso name as the isofs label, and that
label has a hard limit of 32 chars.  Some of our spin names have rather
long names, so I have to truncate something somewhere.  It gets
particularly bad when doing a snapshot or beta release as the term
"Beta" or "Snap#" gets added to the string.  Usually there is enough
string length for final releases to expand F12 to Fedora-12 simply
because the "Beta" or "Snap#" is no longer necessary.
