access to ANY row of the resultset once the data had been returned.
Ex. If  I'm currently at the first row and then wanted to goto the 100,000
row, I would be there immediately, and if I wanted to then goto the 5

Server, I'm not sure what PG does...It seems that brings the entire
resultset client side.
If that is the case, how can I have PG store the resultset on the Server AND
still allow me immediate access to ANY row in the resultset?
