There's a limit to the length of a QUERY_STRING on any CGIs when using the
GET method. I don't remember what the ceiling is.

If you're using a wrapper, you could probably format the data for a POST
method. However, I also think you should be able to set the restrict and
exclude lines via config file since the CGI takes the input and puts it
into the config object. I believe if you don't specify restrict and
exclude to the CGI, it will end up defaulting to the config versions.
