I agree; the great thing about a single-page list is that you can do 
quick-and-dirty subsearch using Find In Page.

This is a feature I think people would miss. And given that it works 
now, and b.m.o. manages to stay up, I don't see a need to eliminate it.

We might, of course, want to page results coming from the database, 
reading each page and then "forgetting" it as we write out the template, 
to reduce server-side memory usage while still having everything on one 
big HTML page.
