beagle-query configurability

Hello folks,

I see that there has been some discussion in the past regarding the maximum number of hits returned by beagle-query. I'd like to throw in my 2c worth with the following comments:

The hard-coded limit of 100 hits is the single most annoying thing in the whole of beagle, which is otherwise a wonderfully useful tool for my work. I regularly get messages like 'Too many matches. Showing latest 6 of total 711'. These six hits are often not enough to find what I was looking for. I can use beagle-search, but as it shows no preview of the files its results aren't of much use to me either.

First of all, if beagle-search can't return all the matches, then I would like to be able to choose whether I get the most relevant, the most recent, the oldest, etc. As a suggestion, it could use the same criteria as the 'Sort' option.

Secondly, I would like to be able to get more than 100 matches. Well actually 100 would be OK if I could get the 100 most relevant, but (to take the case above) 6 is not.

I'm not averse to a bit of code-hacking but I'm no python programmer and don't have the time to reverse-engineer the project. If someone could point me in the right direction to make these changes I'd be happy to do some work on it.
