> Currently we stream the number of rows back to the client before serializing, which means
we need to know how many there are before doing so, which means materializing the entire resultset.
We currently get around this with paging which attempts to restrict the amount of materialization
done in any step, but supporting streaming entire result sets in one native transport "action"
without materializing them all upfront would remove the need for paging in many cases, and
would permit resultsets to be streamed _with isolation_, which most users probably don't realise
is broken by paging.
> We can't use this change yet, but the sooner support for this is introduced to the protocol,
the more likely it is clients will be able to make use of streaming reads once we're actually
able to deliver them.
