Subject: RE: max 200 entries in a dir. why?
From: John Wood (John.Wood_at_royalblue.com)

>> We can, but that would make the operation a lot slower since it would
need to
spin up the disk for each "page" and it would waste more battery (since if
wouldn't spin down, it would continue spinning instead). <<

Yes but it would only do it if the folder is greater than the page (which
can be the 200 limit right now). So it may be slower when you have a lot of
folder entries, but it's better than the alternative (cropping at 200).

It's probably quite a big change though.
