Widget - more config settings, please?

Currently, the widget shows the current month's events by default and ... that's it. There are no settings available to change this.

Can I suggest an improvement? How about enable settings on the events to show based on:

- Number of events
- Events from a start date and an end date

On my site I want the first 5 events shown. But it will only show three of them -- the three events in April.
