Just discovered that this actually requires enabling the group policy for long paths - specifically setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem@LongPathsEnabled to 1.

Apparently the manifest is also required, but in my testing the manifest is ignored and we just get long path support for free. So perhaps we should just add a message to file exceptions when the path is >260?
