Indeed. Not everything needs to immediately "scale" on such level,  
though. (I've noticed tolerable load time for values around  
skip=5000.) Also, as noted, will_paginate (ie. the first-class drop-in  
pagination for Rails apps) depends on "jump to page", unless I am  
seriously mistaken.

Yes, that's a very good idea. Date, first letter of surname, etc. I  
guess it would be possible to do it in will_paginate style. In an  
ideal world, that's precisely what a Ruby gem for working with Couch  
would provide out of the box.
