Modify PLANTUML_LIMIT_SIZE for public server use?

I'm using PlantUML though Python, which I believe utilizes the public PlantUML server. I have a very large class diagram which is being cutoff because of the png size limit. Is it possible to set the PLANTUML_LIMIT_SIZE when calling PlantUML through Python?

Generating PNG on server side is somehow CPU and memory consumming.
(Note that you can use SVG images that does not suffer the same limitation)

We try to keep the online server as open as possible, but allowing large image big would impact all users.
The best option for you would be to install a local version of the server, which does not have the same limitation.

Another option for us would be to allow some kind of login on the server.
In that case, loggued users would have access to larger images. This need some development, though.
Would this be a solution for you ?
