beagle-search does not display all matches. There could be some usability 
reasons behind it, I dont quite know. From performance point of view, getting 
all the hits, which could potentially be thousands (e.g. a query on 
dashboarch-hackers in my mails) - and transferring them to another process, 
can be a performance bottleneck.

You can use beagle-query (the CLI tool) to get all matches. It accepts a 
command line argument to set the maximum number of matches. Obviously, the 
API allows setting any number as max-hit (if unset, the default is 100), so 
you can write you own client to get all hits ;-).
