How much would it hurt?

How much would it hurt to increase the short desc limit to 40 instead of 35 characters?

As it is, only people with almost maxxed sdescs when using a maxxed ldesc will line-carry, (i.e. form a new line.) Of course this is when not wearing hoods. If it were even increased by five, everyone with a maxxed ldesc and a decently long sdesc would be line-carrying. Making every person utilizing this take up two lines just to show them. Add this to maybe a twenty person bar, and you could easily have 40 lines of just people, added to a 30 line room desc, then npcs.

I don't know about you, but with all the stuff I usually have, my mud-client only shows 30 lines, of text. So I have trouble as it is, but I manage.

This may or may not be the real reason of the length, but it seemed logical to me.
