1023 characters limit in plugins strings
I noticed a 1023 chars limit for strings passed to plugins, in particular I noticed that issuing this into the script-foo console
(gimp-text-get-extents-fontname "text" size n "font")
gimps reports error if "text" is longer than 1023 characters:
Error: Error reading string

If its increase doesn't require a rework of a whole chain of functions' interfaces it should be easy to do.

I'd like also to point out that this would enlarge the gimp's usage scope, especially when it is used as a building block for other software rather than as a tool on its own.

Thank you.
