I think you're stuck on that, unless you want to be *really*
incompatible with the rest of the world. The startup packet format has
hard-wired field sizes --- see src/include/libpq/pqcomm.h:
#define SM_DATABASE 64
#define SM_USER 32
#define SM_OPTIONS 64
#define SM_UNUSED 64
#define SM_TTY 64
Don't ask me why SM_USER is different from the rest :-(
If you change these I'd strongly advise bumping the protocol minor
version number, so that you don't have weird behavior should you try
to interoperate with standard code.
This is another thing that should be on the list of stuff to fix when
we next change the FE/BE protocol ...
