|Edit Event Workaround

So I'm trying to change the security of posts en masse (all entries, by month, or by day). The problem is that it looks like I need 2 server hits per post, minimum (more if you keep in mind that half the time I get ServerProtocolViolations -- according to the .NET docs, "The server response was not a valid HTTP response."). If someone is changing 500 entries, and each server hit takes 5 seconds, that adds up pretty quickly. Now imagine if that was 5000.|
What are the hits?
1.) Get the itemid using getevent (displayitemid is the one that export.bml gives, and that is (itemid + a random number) * 256, so you need to get the actual id).
2.) The actual editevent hit.
Does anyone know of a workaround for this? Is there one? I'd like to think that changing a journal's security (something I've heard a lot of calls for) wouldn't require running the program for 15 straight hours to do it.
