Request-URI Too Large (414)

I'm trying to sort a photo set with 790 photos in it.

I sort in the order I want and call photosetEdit with the new order.

It tells me my request URI is too big. This I assume is because flickr.net uses the REST protocal... and chance of switching it to XML or SOAP? I assume, but don't know, that they wouldn't have this issue.

Anyone know a way around my issue?

Thanks,

In a word, no :(

But seriously, it would be tons of work to convert the library to XML-RPC or SOAP.

A work around might be to include the parameters as form-data, i.e. like a upload request, in the body not in the URL. I'm not sure if that would work though.
