[wp-hackers] (Another) problem with WP_Rewrite - The too-many-pages-bug

Actually, that is part of the WordPress WP_Rewrite feature. It allows 
for easily finding paths that are completely dynamic.

For example, most web sites would have that hard coded into the 
controller, but since WordPress allows for customizing the rewrite rules 
to the extreme, it would be almost impossible to allow for the extension 
using my code. Therefore, I mean, I would allow you to use the hard 
coded rewrites, if you wish and probably set up a few of them to use 
them, since it is the same as in WordPress. It is just that with 
postnames, it would be too slow to do all of the queries needed to get 
what you were looking at otherwise.

Not really scalable when you get up to the tens of thousands or for some 
just thousands of posts. So, what I'm trying to say, is that it wouldn't 
be fixed with my rewrite of the WP_Rewrite and WP_Query components.
