That makes sense. I can see how limiting the number of matches displayed
would help. However, I just entered my wife's name and my
brother-in-law's name into the search box. beagle-search just returned
the "top 23 of 24 matches." Why limit something like that? Is showing
"only" 23 out of 24 matches really that much faster than showing all 24?
