We're just having a discussion here about the length of URLs and
Bookmarks. While I am strongly opposed to URLs that are too long to
read I need some factual information if there is a length restriction
on browsers in order to when a URL cannot be bookmarked any longer.

The context is that we have a map application that will have up to 26
stop overs in the driving directions which'll mean that we will get
urls up to 2000 characters long.
