When I do a findall (e.g. UI search) for something that returns 1000+ Subjects (which I have as my maxResults) in my sources.xml, it gives an exception.  It is supposed to throw a SubjectTooManyResults exception which is caught in UI and displayed on the screen.  I could fix this immediate problem, but I kind of think that there should be another method in the source called searchPage(searchString) which is just like search, but if the source has a
