[Just Pushed]: Search scroll support

See here: http://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/issues/issue/77. Basically allows to continue and scroll a search request quite easily, with faster execution then if executing the search again. It comes at the expense of resources used to maintain the scrolling state on each node.

Note also, that scrolling is in a point in time (the time the first search was executed) scrolling. Any changes applied to the index, even with a refresh, will not be taken into account when scrolling (which is what you would want). This guarantees that unique results will be returned. Think of it as opening a cursor in database lingo.
