Fixed issue with excerpt length #15

I understand that the original problem this is intending to fix was a too short default excerpt. However, this fix breaks the capability to set a default excerpt - which becomes a major problem if posts include shortcodes, etc. (The shortcodes will show up in the excerpts unprocessed).
IMHO this problem should have been fixed outside of this plugin, using the official recommendations here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Filter_Reference/excerpt_length
Could you please consider reverting this change so I can continue to show my manually entered excerpts in my news feed? I'll open a bug report and pull request myself if you agree.
