to indicate that this attribute should be limited to 20 characters.
Perhaps somewhere a char name still exists in Microsoft's clients.
You may be able to use a longer user name in the userPrincipalName
attribute, but I can assure you that this limitation isn't in Samba (we
just don't ever use fixed length strings except where the protocol
requires it - which isn't the case here).
