The results are aggregated AFAIK. If you do a key range and keys are on 3 nodes it'll return
a cohesive list. It's much more tricky to get a list of ALL of the keys across the cluster.
We've found that you need to do many key ranges to enumerate over all of the keys in the cluster.

It's possible, just not wrapped in a simple function.
