Ok, I'm with you now. Sorry, I just wasn't following...

You make a valid point. I don't disagree with adding paging in, but it 
would not have taken a huge amount of effort to make an admin option for 
it (or even just an announcement about the change), and it would have 
saved me hours of time.

But that's all happened now, so the more important question, I guess, is 
whether there are plans to make paging easier to switch on and off?
