I thought that 1000-byte limit was kept when we introduced the 64k
interface to interoperate with other side that does not yet support
the 64k interface. Is your justification that such an old version of
Git no longer matters in the real world (which is true, I think), or
we use 1000-byte limit in some codepaths even when we know that we
are talking with a 64k-capable version of Git on the other side?
