Limit Results From DataFeed Without Custom Query?

Just curious if there was something built in by default to limit the result set of say <% control ChildrenOf(page-url) %>?

I know I could write a dataobject::get() in my controller to limit the results, but is there anything built in by default I could just put in my template?

I do stuff like this a lot and would save time/code.

i.e show last 5 articles in a section.

I thought I saw somebody mention something like <% range(0,5) %> a long time ago, but can't find anything through search.
