Hmm. Interesting idea. You can't really do it now.

This has been proposed and a bit of code was contributed, but it has
not been followed up yet. I believe the code is far from a complete
patch. But this has been asked enough, it will get added somewhere on
the road to 3.2.0.

Obviously you can already do this. :-)

Of course if you're willing to write a wrapper of some sort, you
could sort the results by date and then have the wrapper stop
displaying after the specific date.
