I will, and also I just upgraded.

Something else: According to the beagle-query man page, only a maximum
of 100 search results can be returned per backend.  How can I increase
this number to, say, 10,000?  As said before, I often get dozens if not
hundreds of search results in email files that can be easily filtered,
either visually (in beagle-search) or programatically as follows:

  beagle-query something | grep -vE '/[0-9]+$'

If the limit cannot be extended, then that's a severe limitation which
unfortunately would mean that beagle cannot be used as a general purpose
desktop search tool.
