Logged Sapeli's maximum moves from standard games against Fairy:

79 moves is the maximum currently.
I think 128 is plenty for gameplay. For analyzing 256 is bullet proof.
I will be surprised if 79 moves is the maximum for human games.

There are many games between children when the weaker side does not resign and the stronger side prefer to promote many pawns to queens instead of making mate fast and I am sure that some of them have more than 79 moves.
Hahah Obviously you are correct - but the reference is made at a higher level of play - not child play.
