Mari - Multiple Objects

I've just started getting into Mari.

I've got a small train comprised of 490 objects. Mari complains 200 is max for selection sets, so that's out the window.

Mari wont import an obj as multiple objects, just makes it a single, so that's out the window.

Patches are disabled, I'm using PTEX. The only way is to have my entire train as a single object and I can't hide/lock parts, which would make mari weaker than mudbox at painting! Which I don't believe, how do I work with so many objects?

Also can Mari not smooth an object for painting on?

break them up into logical sections? Also, you can isolate select on the 200 sets is overkill.

UV patches is another good way to isolate areas...but with Ptex you are losing some of the advantages of a UV workflow
