Look at the type used for cve_id in the MySQL table. The schema
available here :
allows a maximum of only 32 characters, in other words, 2 CVEs. That's
definitely too small given the plugins that exist today. I'm not sure
what an upper bound should be, though, but 255 should avoid problems
with most plugins.
