An Issue with max request uri length

I have a unicorn server that receives a long http GET request and i
got 414 Request-URI Too Long.
After looking around I have found that it's hard coded to 15k (
global_variables.h:65   DEF_MAX_LENGTH(REQUEST_URI, 1024 * 15);) the
question is what is the main reason for this restriction and can it be
overwritten by some configuration and if not can you please patch it
to work with a configuration?
