BTW, whether someone finds a history list of 1000 elements to be
long or reasonable might also have to do with how they access its

If someone typically just cycles among elements using, say, `M-p',
instead of searching (using, say, `M-r') or completing, then 1000
would generally be far too long a list - as would even 100 probably.
(I tend to complete against the history list.)
