[Zope] Retrieving a set number of entries

It's easy to create some code that does this in Zope. Create a ZSQL 
method that does a select on your database. Then drag down the products 
menu and add a "Z Search Interface." It will prompt you for the name of 
a search document and a report document and will automagically create a 
results page that does just what you're looking to do. We use this as a 
quick and dirty way to write a search interface and then go hack up the 
code to make it look the way we want. The "size" attribute of the 
dtml-in tag of the results page is where you tweak how many you want on 
a page.
