Increase the Picklist Value Limit beyond 40 characters

Salesforce Platform, Customization

Currently, the limit on an individual Picklist value is 40 characters and if you go beyond this the value simply cuts this the string off at 40 characters.  We need to be able to increase this limit.

    All, we are going to change this to partially delivered given that the change applies to custom picklists only. Standard picklists still have the 40 character limit. Apologies for the oversight.
