Yes, my change "moves" the strings out of the structure. I believe in this
case the difference does not really matter, but I do not know what other
people's preferences are (is it preferred to have the string inside the
structure, or is the pointer ok? I slightly prefer the pointer, because it
does not force to create a limit for the size of the string).

In this case, the size of the structure is not relevant: I proposed this
change just to remove the arbitrary "50".
