You might want to post your reference.  There hasn't been a built-in
query length limit for quite some time now.  MySQL's benchmark, by the
way, erroneously listed postgresql as having a 16 meg max query size
because (tada!) they had a 16 meg buffer allocated in their benchmark
and when it filled up and errored out the size was 16 meg.  I don't
believe this was ever fixed, either in their code or in the report they
had for a very long time on their web site.  And it was pointed out
again and again, by me.
