I'm somewhat surprised that you believe that 3 % longer file names would make a noticeable difference in performance for your application; have you measured this? Most cases of data encoded in file names that I have come across would happily use something like base64, with the added benefit of portability and easier manipulation and inspection of the directories with standard tools.
