Warning seen on Fedora 29 with GCC 8.3.1 20190223 (Red Hat 8.3.1-2):

Objects/structseq.c: In function 'structseq_repr':
Objects/structseq.c:187:5: warning: 'strncpy' specified bound depends on the length of the source argument [-Wstringop-overflow=]
     strncpy(pbuf, typ->tp_name, len);
Objects/structseq.c:185:11: note: length computed here
     len = strlen(typ->tp_name) > TYPE_MAXSIZE ? TYPE_MAXSIZE :

Attached PR rewrites structseq_repr() using _PyUnicodeWriter for better performance and remove the arbitrary limit of 512 bytes.
