--- Comment #5 from Aaron Schulz <aschulz4...@gmail.com> ---
With B, the API would would get the requested number of rows within a shard
(moving to the next one as needed to respect the limit). The API continue
parameter would include the shard and next link. The shards just give a stable
ordering to page on, rather than having to keep doing more and more work for
each subsequent query of the same result size. It should be much faster for the
api-user.
