Personally, bailing out seems wrong; I don't think the designers considered
the MAXARGS limit as a feature, but probably thought "no one would ever be
crazy enough to want to delete 1000 messages at once".  Yet here we are :-)
I've run into that issue many times over the years, so this isn't anything new.  I just worked around it by deleting messages in groups of 1000 or less.
