#count and #size

I have been pretty frustrated with the inconsistencies of AR’s #count
method. In my humble opinion, the count method should always return an
integer. The “grouped count” functionality is powerful but should not be
lumped in with the main #count method. This is further seen by the
inconsistency on the #size method where in the result is either the
of #count if unloaded or #length of the results when loaded. I plan as
proposing this as a PR, but thought to first start it as a discussion in
the google group. Please share your opinions on my proposal.

What’s inconsistent about it? it should run a SQL query for the count.
