Then I suggest you set the server side to X. And have a param in the jndi
source where the max would be set to X-1. So if X was returned, you could
detect it in the jndi source and ask the user to narrow the search. Or you
could do what you do.

If you have 1000 subjects in a group, and you want to show the first 50 on
the screen, and the thing you are sorting by is in the subject source, you
have to get them all, and sort. If we were dealing with one source at a time
we could add paging/sorting in the subject source, but you could have a group
with members from several sources.
