Increase hit highlighted summary length / make configurable

Currently, the HitHighlightedSummary value is shows hits from the first 10,000 characters of a document. When the hits are not included in the summary, it pulls a summary from a seemingly random part of the document.

This limit seems arbitrarily low. Many of our documents hit the limit after the first 5 pages, which often include a lot of boilerplate. It's caused a lot of confusion for our users and during usability testing, many expressed a lack of confidence in the search results ("why am I getting this result, is it broken?").

This limit should be increased, and preferably configurable on-premises, where it can be tailored to the needs of our content and usage.

    Suffering from the same problem. Please significantly increase this 10,000 character limit.
