Add support for ScanIndexForward
Add support for a query parameter like ScanIndexForward (like with Amazon DynamoDB). This parameter would allow us to scan a range from back to front without using a descending row key. This is not the same as an order by, this simply let's me control whether Azure Tables get results in forward or reverse order. The latter is often very useful when you do event sourcing.

This would essentially be equivalent of implementing the Reverse() linq function, and I agree that it would help a lot of scenarios. I am using Table Storage it to implement a time series storage, and it would be a great help for me.
It should also much more doable than a generic OrderBy implementation, that may not even be feasible.

You can do this currently only by storing the same entity twice with an ascending and descending row key.
