Right. But it doesn't have to. If you parametrize it and make it detectable 
(say a member function that can be asked for the size limit), you could 
create code that would make it possible to have the server check for the 
client limits.
But basically you're right at least from a deployment point of view. If you 
change the limit you at least have to take care of unchanged versions - which 
is a hassle specially in a large deployment.
I think I'll go with paging.
