[hibernate-dev] HHH-1123 - Cannot put more than 1000 elements in a InExpression

Splitting is not always an option.  Consider a predicate like:

... where a in (x1, ... x2000) and b in (y1, ... y2000) ...

If you split this up, you will have misses.  Yes, it works if you can 
keep it all in one query because you can structure it to maintain the 
original semantics.  However, please read the comments on that JIRA 
issue.  For some databases, this restriction is not just on the number 
of elements in a in-list, but on the number of parameters overall.  
Splitting these 2 in-lists about into 4 does not address that.

I commented on the issue that I am actually inclined to simply reject 
this one.  In fact, I thought we already did.  Maybe that was another 
earlier one?
