There are two types of ResultSets that can be returned by the JDBC driver.  
One is backed by a cursor and can only be used for TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY
ResultSets so it is not really applicable to you.  The other method
retrieves all results at once and stashes them in a Vector.  This makes
next, absolute, and relative positioning all equal cost.
