How about moving the dextrose part of the name before the build number,
in place of "os"? Assuming we want 4-digit build numbers to be future
proof, we can use 4 characters for the product name even within the 8.3
limit (*). DEXT, DXTR, DOSE, XTRO, whatever, take your pick.
If we want to do a custom build for some reason we can use different
prefixes, e.g. PGUY.
(*) What's the reason for that, BTW? Avoiding the FAT patent minefield?
