Well, this is only when you are staring at the neighborhood level and
there's more results that we can represent. Then we limit with those
heuristics and a hard limit.

But it's not a goal of Sugar to limit the amount of people with whom
can be collaborated, it's "just" that we miss a list view in the
neighborhood zoom level.
