Subject Re: [GitHub] couchdb pull request: New pagination

I think the right thing to do is have some kind of "expecting more docs? Check your <advanced
options>" message if the number of docs is less than the page size, and advanced options
are set.  

The alternative is removing the limit option, which doesn't solve the problem for other limiting
options, or having conditional messaging around the page size.

If you take a look on screen, you'll didn't notice any page size cap. Only 1) if you open
Query Options, but it consumes a lot of visible space to keep it always opened 2) if you take
a look on URL, but there could be a lot of parameters and @deathbearbrown going to get rid
them from there.
