I'm not adamant on any particular change, just noticing the inconsistency. I
usually write macro buffer sizes to accomodate the largest string I plan to
hold, so it can be used ubiquitously when the overage is small and transiently
allocated, but if you feel like the space would be better conserved a TMPBUFLEN/
TMPBUFLEN2 approach would be fine (or a TMPBUFLENU32 / TMPBUFLENU64 macro set).

Its not anything that needs fixing now, just an observation for clean up at some
future point.
