as the legacy of the SEARCH limit parameter is that it applies to each web, rather than the total number of results, I think we can deprecate it (basically docco it as 'only use if you really know what it means and its what you want..) and replace it with the more expected 'show the first X results after sorting'

which pagesize already does...

we need more unit test to show the affects of limit - especially on the modified search done on WebChanges.. when applying paging to trunk's WebChanges, I found that going to showpage=3 I got no more results due to that weird 'optimization' (comiting a fix for that, but its still dodgey code)

Sven, This had commits against 1.1.0, but it appears that it was mostly tests and documented TODO;s

Should this be bumped to a future release?
