I'd like to see an example of your variable names. I don't use hungarian notation and my name are usually under 10 characters.
IMHO, the names should be long enough to be meaningful but not too long.
You can't always control the names you're working with. In our case, we're writing .NET-based code that uses a lot types originally defined in C#. The standard in C#-land tends to be much more verbose than in Python, and definitely presents some challenges when trying to keep lines under 80 chars. I imagine that Jython code has a similar issue when interoperating with Java.
