Username length limit?


I'm trying to find out the maximum length of usernames on Linux systems (Debian Woody specifically, but I guess it's the same between different distros). Strangely enough, I can't find any clear answer to my question.

So I have two questions really:
- what is the maximum length of usernames (if any)?
- where can I find authoritative documentation of such things?

Many thanks!
