#6126 new Bug

reduce TR_MULTISCRAPE_MAX

Description

currently, TR_MULTISCRAPE_MAX = 64

this leads to scrape url's that are too long (~4KB) for many trackers, at least among the private trackers I surveyed. ie, trackers will return HTTP 414 when url is too long. Every tracker I tested was able to deal with 1036byte url, so recommend reducing this to TR_MULTISCRAPE_MAX = 15

(based on average hash length of 50bytes)

@reardon thanks for the testing! I was able to patch so there's a setting I can use to change the value when those pesky HTTP 414 occur.
