I've had some issues with multi-site recently myself, but this isn't one of 
them.  What exactly is the problem with absolute paths generated by the code 
having long names?  You aren't typing them yourself, or shouldn't be.

Perhaps the obvious thing being missed is that it's not a problem?  Or am I 
just not seeing how it's a problem? :-)  (I typically put all files under 
sites anyway, and in 5.0 the new sites/all directory encourages you do never 
ever put things in /modules or /themes.)

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
