 With the introduction of the block editor and full site editing,
 shortcodes (though still supported) are no longer the recommended way to
 display a gallery.

 With that in mind, I'm going to add a `close` suggestion as a
 `maybelater`. I won't close this out right now because I think it's a fair
 attribute to introduce, even in block editor times. If someone is
 interested in taking the time to create a new patch, this can be looked
 at. If there's no new activity in a few months, I'll return and close it

 Because it has not received any attention in over 7 years,
 [attachment:"12799-4.diff"] certainly will need a refresh.

 Replying to [comment:19 helen]:
 > I'm not sure `count` is the right name for the attribute either, even if
 that's what it's called in the code.

 I also don't like `count` as the attribute name. `limit` feels like a more
 natural name to give this one.
