The current default for maximum_pages is 10 because the ht://Dig package
comes with 10 images, with numbers 1 through 10, for use as page list
buttons. If we increased the limit, we'd have to field a whole lot more
questions from users irate because only the first 10 buttons are graphics,
and the rest are text. The default is the way it is for good reason.
If you don't like it, change it! The same goes for any config attribute.
That's why they're settable. We can't please everyone, and we're not
about to try. Just my 2 cents.
