Famous Wordpress "Menu Limit" need help getting around it

So I did a ton of research on this and it seems that Wordpress has some sort of Maximum Menu Item limit!? I don't know why this is the first I am hearing and seeing this, but this is a huge deal as I cant even replicate a clients basic html site over to wordpress without losing a ton of menu items!

Does anyone have any suggestions other than changing the "suhosin" value? I cant do this with my provider, and from research it may not even work since supposedly it is a wordpress core limitation?

Has anyone gotten around this? For some reason I find it hard to believe that Wordpress being such a huge community hasn't found a work around or solution to this deep core issue.

Value:

suhosin.post.max_vars = 0
suhosin.request.max_vars = 0
