I hate to suggest it, but am going to anyway... what about a diagnostic as
well as the records? As discussed there are fatal and non fatal
conditions, and this strikes me as a good non fatal one.
You asked for 100000 records, but I'm not insane, here's 50 and a
diagnostic to say that 50 is my maximum records retreivable at once.
