Increase the size of the Reference and Distribution Reference fields

Both reference and distribution reference fields in GP's GL can only handle a maximum of 30 characters. I understand why these fields were kept relatively small when the product was developed in the early 90's, but 25 years later my customers expect a little more space to write descriptive information. I suggest 50-100 characters would be more appropriate and certainly more useful.
NOTE: I have the same suggestion for the "Description" field on the Payables Transaction Entry window (also 30 char max), and probably many other fields in GP, but the GL ones seem to be the biggest problem for my customers.
Thank you for your suggestion. We have reviewed this functionality ask previously. Unfortunately, given the impact throughout the entire system and on customizations, this is not something we can consider at this time..
