we need a few more rounds to get a few more things done.
We should go from 15 to say... 18 or 20.

If you think the game is too short, you are still a newbie. If it feels too short, than you're at least playing the rules right.

There are still 14 rounds, as before. However, there are now additional action cards that can be taken each round without using family members.

There's a translation of the man himself explaining the game in good detail: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/419977

The whole point of the game is that you're a struggling farmer trying to make a living with minimum resources. The game is supposed to feel too short. The new cards let you accomplish more each round, but there's also a lot more that needs to be done each round (accumulate food AND fuel), so it balances out to about the same feeling as before, I'd expect.

It's just like real life: I never have enough time to get everything done. Gotta learn how to prioritize!

I agree, Agricola is about prioritizing your actions and making tough decisions about what NOT to do as well as what path to pursue. Expanding the game would theoretically isolate more players because it would make the game longer and would allow those players with great combos to exploit them even more (less friendly to beginners).
