I note #7778, but why not also make the excerpt length something one can set from the dashboard without any plugins?

I fully support this suggestion.

you should be able to pass two more optional variables to the excerpt function:

  1. the length of the excerpt
  2. the text to display at the end such as ... or continue

There is an excerpt_length filter. Not sure if this is worth a UI option.
