You have a similar situation in `vc-print-log', which is limited by
`vc-log-show-limit'. Do you have the impression, that this function is
"slightly useless"?

And I have also in mind to mirror `debbugs-gnu-*' functions by
`debbugs-debian-*' functions, which would retrieve bugs from
bugs.debian.org instead of debbugs.gnu.org. Here we don't speak about
5.000 bugs to be retrieved.

Best regards, Michael.
