Few people will spend time coding software unless they expect people
to actually use it. Otherwise, why bother?
Authors who want more people to use their software will accommodate
reasonable requests, instead of taking arbitrary, unyielding positions
and defending them to the death.
If a maximum header size must be set at some arbitrary value, then why
not 50,000 instead of 5,000? That would put the limit high enough to
avoid the type of problems users are reporting.
No one is likely to have a recipient list exceeding 50,000 characters,
but it's easy to see how they could exceed 5,000.

Why not just go all the way and fork the code while we're at it, if we
can't be flexible?

Thanks for the free advice.
