Subject Regarding "Skip as fast as startkey"
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 14:12:03 GMT
Was looking at this:

Which in the final comment states: "As far as I'm aware, skip is
equivalently fast to a startkey search"

Glanced at the latest documentation, which has this pre v.1.2 vs after

Did a quick test with 1.700.543  docs. CouchDb v1.5 Windows. Key is an
integer from 1 to 1.700.543

13000ms for limit=10&skip=500000
48ms with startkey, startkeydocid, skip, limit

Seems to me that the documents should still say "Don't use this" or what am
I missing?
