Project ID length - remove lower limit , or at least allow 2
Any sound reason to forbid using project IDs like "hr" (human resources), "fr" (fundraising), "pr" (public relations) or just any local two-letter abbreviations? Having to mock up a pointless unusual 3-letter acronym for hr feels kind of... wierd...
Why putting in such a restriction, instead of letting the admins decide how they assign their IDs?
Or is there some technical limitation lurking behind that restricts that freedom?
I'll try to hack my instance (unless there's indeed a hard tech. limit.), but would be nice to avoid doing it for every upgrade...
(Done a quick search on identifier length, and only found #1998. Sorry if I'm still creating a duplicate.)
Thanks a million! (And a LOVELY product, BTW!!!)

Here's an untested patch which should lower the limit to a minimum of two characters.
Please test it and let me know if it doesn't work.

Thanks! I will give it a go (first changing the upper limits, too, as my DB data already seems to not to have 20, but 30 chars (which is still kinda' low).
