OK, let's please have a test with identifiers that
share the first 1024 or so characters before they differ.
That will
  (a) clarify that yes, we mean what the grammar says: identifiers
  can be as long as a piece of string.
  (b) make it likely that anybody with limits in their code will
  discover this issue and report it to us if it matters.

Steve, are you in the mood to add such a test? Or maybe you, Andy,
as you have done many of the syntax related tests? Or Jeen?
