Are you referring to the following chunk of code?

    if ($pager) {
      $result = pager_query($sql, variable_get('default_nodes_main',
10), 0, $sql_count, $args);
    else {
      $result = db_query_range($sql, $args, 0,
variable_get('feed_default_items', 10));

I saw that, but it seems to behave counter intuitively to me.  When I
set the pager parameter to FALSE it limited my results to 10.  When I
set pager to TRUE then it respects the pager limit (now 30).  I guess
when I set the parameter to false I assumed there wouldn't be a
built-in limit, or at least there would be a straight forward way to
override it.

Unless I am mistaking how the function works.
