Thank you for your answer.
I agree they should not replace databases or files, but I think 255 is just way too lightweight. It feels unnatural to have this limitation for no specific reason. 

Recently, I've seen a lot of solutions that emulate the namedtuple functionality with some classes in order to workaround this issue, but they all feel "forced" and require some unsavory hacks.

I think namedtuple is one the most useful structures in the language, and like tuples and dicts, shouldn't be limited by design.
