_print_scripts does not currently have a way to split these, but it is possible.

However, 532 is not a particularly long query string. Information I
can find suggests that a realistic limit for the total URL length
would be 2k, because IE has problems with URLs longer than 2048
characters. If you want to be safe, 1024 characters would be max.

IIS's default URL limit is 16,384 characters.
