Oh yeah, you can definitely have more than 70 characters, I haven't had 
an issue with character length. Possibly something to do with your 
personal setup? I know it has a resolution requirement of 80x24 and the 
refresh isn't very good inside of a screen session, but other than that 
suits me just fine. I can't see me wanting to switch password managers 
in the near future so I've never looked into exporting of the db.
