[vdr] Help of SVDRP commands

I noticed new SVDRP commands are limited to 9 characters.

./svdrpsend.pl help
214-Plugin dummy v0.0.1 - Enter description for 'dummy' plugin
214-    123456789

  static const char *HelpPages[] = {
       "    Print some stuff.",

I found MAXHELPTOPIC in the svdrp.c causing this limitation.
But why? :) I don't see any reasons for this limitation. When calling the
Plugin, this limit to 10 chars isn't implemented.
At least there should be a hint in the PLUGIN.html on this abbreviation.
