To me it would seem that this change would dramatically increase the processing time in some cases. In the simplest case, I used a basic full table SELECT. In this scenario, the subquery will grab all the information from the table, when perform a count on that instead of providing just a simple count of the data we need. Is that not correct?


Perhaps, but admittedly performance was not the top priority. Correctness and cross-db platform interoperability were higher priorities. That said, there is a great PR (#5518) that will allow for custom Select objects during pagination.


As I believe the correctness problem is mainly down to problems with queries having group by, maybe we could simply check if there are any group -bys and then select the paginator strategy accordingly: without sub-select if there are no group-bys and using the sub select if there are)..?
