You don't need more than that -- it's only meant for creating a template email message, not a long dissertation. 1024 characters is a lot! :) If only 1024 characters are supported, that's a bug, at least according to the GNU coding standards. It's not a design problem; it's a bug in your client. (Never mind that most of the world ignores GNU...) Perhaps a new URL scheme, say "email:"? I don't see how an email: scheme would buy you anything. Old clients break whether you call it email: and they totally lose; and old clients break the way things are.
