Not with beagle-search, although you can specify the maximum number of
matches with the beagle-query command-line client.  This will take
longer and use more memory, however.  With that many matches, you're
better off just providing additional search terms.

It's basically the same as Google.  They way you match 5 million
documents, but the most you can view is 1000. :)  Nobody knows about
that limit, though, because nobody tries to view that many.
