st: Stata plugin support for long strings

I am trying to update my Stata plugin command -strgroup- to take
advantage of Stata 13's support for long strings. I am running Stata
13.1 and am using version 2.0 of Stata's plugin interface

However, it appears that Stata's plugin interface is still limited to
244 character strings. Specifically, the command for retrieving string
values from Stata, -SF_sdata(i,j,k)-, truncates long strings to 244

Does Stata have any plans to update its plugin interface to remedy this?
