#4564 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add maxFeatures option to OGRDataSource::CopyLayer

Description

maxFeatures option in CopyLayer would be useful at least in GML datasource (which does not override the default) and WFS implementations.

I guess this could be quite simple to do and not break anything as the CopyLayer method has an options arguments. The added overhead is minimal.

A question to Ari: Wouldn't it be even better if it had also an option for offset? Like &COUNT=&START_INDEX in WFS and LIMIT x OFFSET y in PostgreSQL and SQLite.

Probably no longer needed with the availability of GDALVectorTranslate() that has a -limit option
