I had a client who wanted a different excerpt length than the default (55 words). I quickly realized that the only way to do it currently is to copy the existing wp_trim_excerpt() function, remove the default filter, and add your custom filter.

This would be made much simpler by simply applying a filter on the $excerpt_length variable. Diff attached.
