Just in case: both HTTP and HTML recommend a maximum of 1024 (ASCII)
characters for a URL. Servers are free to ignore header lines with longer
URLs in them and browsers are free to cut them as well. Note that this is
a recommendation, not a requirement.

...it all depends on how safe and compatible you want to be.
