THis is a work-around for the size limit on HTTP GETs that range uses.
Very long requests fail and thus there's a certain type of query that
can't be made. This chane updates the library to automatically split
and make multiple requests when the size is larger than 7500 characters.
Generally apache is configured for 8190 characters, but with the fqdn
plus other bits of the header, this is a safer limit.
