Subject Re: MaxRows and disabling sort

Why do you want to do this? That is, what problem do you think would
be solved by this? Because there are other problems if you're trying to,
say, return all rows that match....

But no, there's nothing that I know of that would do what you want (of
course that doesn't mean there isn't).
