The admin list page performs a count(*) (twice!) when viewing the list page 
of a model. One of these counts can be disabled, but the pagination count 
can not be. On huge tables, this can be a massive performance 
issue. was created to disable 
the count, but it only allowed disabling one of them. I've reopened the 
ticket with Matthew who has implemented the suggestion to disable 
pagination features that require count.


Does anyone have strong views one way or another here? Would like to hear 
if so.
