Erik,

This question has come up before. For high traffic sites that
can't afford to have the search engine accumulating thousands
of hits, only to deliver 100, or perhaps just a few, the
current approach *seems* like quite a lot of extra processing.
Is there some way to have the engine simply stop generating
the hit list after it reaches the specified threshold?

Thanks,

Murray
