Actually, the distributed default is 30, but your point is still valid.
I prefer however to think in terms of the RFEs on this which ask for
various things from simply exposing the parameter in the web interface
to providing a radio button selection (e.g. 20, 50, 100, all) on the
pages to paginating without regard for the alphabet.
I like the latter idea which would allow, in the example of chunk size
= 30, for a list of 31 to 60 members to be displayed in two pages
rather than 20 or more. This can make it more difficult to find a
particular member in a large list, but the 'Find member' function is
probably better for this anyway.
