[Potlatch-dev] Ways with more than 2000 points

I'm trying to convert a GPS track of the Pacific Crest Trail to a way using Potlatch and I'm having trouble. The first sticking point is that my GPS trail (http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/UberHiker/traces/834103) is showing a lot of gaps when converted to a way. I can see the thin blue line of the track behind the red line of the way and it is also broken in places, probably a sign that the GPX file starts and stops the line where I wasn't expecting it. But after the track breaks it seems the way missed the next few points before restarting. I'll fix up my next GPX to be one continuous track but I thought you should know.
The next problem is the 2000 point limit. The Pacific Crest Trail is 2600 miles long, and though it does cross with, and occasionally merge with other trails it is one long trail and there are plenty of times where it will exceed the 2000 point limit. The first length I'm uploading, which covers barely 120 miles has 3095 points and I really don't want to split it out there in the middle of the forest. Is there a method to produce a way large than 2000?
