Named tuples offer a useful mix of features from both dict and tuple data structures. However, unlike dictionaries and tuples, Named tuples are only allowed to hold up to 255 items.

This behavior seems inconsistent and un-Pythonic.
Is there a way to remove this restriction? Why not set a much higher limit?
