Subject Re: PaginatedList question

Hi Clinton,

I'm interested in knowing why you would discourage the use of the
paginated list in a "high performance" system?

In response to another post...

In order to compute the number of pages (using the paginatedlist), a
simple binary search method can be applied once when the result is first
queried.  This binary search finds the last page in the set; reducing the
set by half on every iteration (hence binary).  Of course, some critical
assumptions have to be made.  The end result is something very similar to
google, where it tells you that your search yielded n pages with m
records... but when you click on the last page, those numbers are
re-adjusted.  I hope this makes sense to you...

Nevertheless, I am more interested in why the use of the paginated list is
