probably this is feature request. Simply, I would like to have support for standard pagination (skip + limit) in GetSlice Thrift method. Is this feature on the road map?

Now, I have to perform GetSlice call, that starts on "" and "limit" is set to "skip" value. Then I read the last column name returned and subsequently perform the final GetSlice call - I use the last column name as "start" and set "limit" to "limit" value.

This workaround is not very efficient when I need to skip a lot of columns (so "skip" is high) - then a lot of data must be transferred via network. So I think that support for Skip in GetSlice would be very useful (to avoid high network traffic).

The implementation could be very straightforward (same as the workaround) or maybe it could be more efficient - I think that whole row (so all columns) must fit into memory so if we have all columns in memory...

Thank you!
