Well, the syntax is a bit more complicated, for example \\?\c:\reactos, but it
would be possible to implement longer drive names this way.
Of course there are some limitations. The API function GetLogicalDrive()
is only capable to return a bit mask of existing drive letters. (max. 26 out of 32)
But this is already superseded by GetLogicalDriveStrings(), which would be
compatible to "drive words".
