groupByfunction to work around this issue, but now I have a question: are the 250 results max counted before the grouping, or after? If it's after the grouping, then I'll be fine, as 250 results = 250 table rows. If it's before, though, then for example 250 results might be 150 table rows.
It's counted after.
