No. You would need to modify the code and maintain your own version of

Note you can run into potential problems with truncation of lines if
they exceed approximately 8000-8192 characters. At least when on
separate lines, risk of that occurring is less and from that pretty
well everyone here wouldn't even know such truncation does in fact
