Instead of 8 results, you can now get up to 32. I don't understand why the limit is a power of 2, but the API should return at least 100 (or 128) results.

alex, feel free to contact me for further clarification.

in a nutshell:
- my goal to provide a high reliability, low latency, comprehensive search service
- for a number of reasons, we launched with a result limit of 8
- the change we set live last night allows for 4 pages of results hence the new limit of 32
- at this point in time, we need to watch the service closely and listen to our customers
- based on solid customer feedback and hard data on the service, we can re-evaluate the number of pages offered as well as the maximum number of results in a bundle
