 Submitting as Mr. Nacin suggested would be a good idea.

 The issue in words I understand is: when you use the_excerpt() on (for
 instance) a custom page template, it ignores the <!-- more --> comment
 that you might have carefully placed in your content. I would expect it to
 honor this, since that is kind of the point of that special comment.
 the_content() will honor it when used on non-single-pages, but in the case
 of a custom page template, the_content() will of course spit out the
 entirely of the content.

 Andrew gave me this code which does the trick:

 and not for public consumption.

 This is my lame visual of where I was running into the issue:
