Looks like this guy (Brian Hess) wrote a script to split the token range and run count(*) on
each subrange: <>

– SELECT’s WHERE clause can use token(), which is what you’d want to use to page through
the whole token space.

want to determine rows per node, limit the token range to that owned by the node (easier with
1 token than vnodes, with vnodes repeat num_tokens times).
