Support 'skip' in facet queries
Currently the results of facet queries can be limited adding the "count:n" parameter to select only the top n results.
If one is interested in seeing all results of a facet query, there is no other way than setting the 'count' value sufficiently high to make sure that all result are included in the response.
In the scenario of a large number of distinct values for the facet field those queries may, however, result in a large response with poor performance.
In order to be able to provide paging through facet results for better performance, it's necessary to have a mechanism for skipping first m elements and then selecting the next n, e.g.:
Is there anything like that in pipeline?
