 Right now, when using get_archives, it always starts with the first item.
 Its limit function can only be used to select the number of archive links
 to show, but not where to start. Here's a short example, but just imagine
 it with 50-60 items. I want Wordpress to be able to show stuff like this:
 Most recent[[BR]]
 * May 2006[[BR]]
 * April 2006[[BR]]
 Older items[[BR]]
 * March 2006[[BR]]
 * February 2006[[BR]]
 * January 2006[[BR]]
 Using code like this (the second parameter is the limit parameter):
 echo "Most recent<br>";
 get_archives('monthly', '2', 'html', '', '', TRUE); // show two
 echo "Older items<br>";
 get_archives('monthly', '3,*', 'html', '', '', TRUE); // start with the
 third, show the rest
 (Ofcourse, this might not be on one page, but a combination might be used
 on different pages throughout the website). Other examples could be:
 get_archives('monthly', '3,2', 'html', '', '', TRUE); // start with the
 third item, show two items
 So basically using the limit parameter analogue to the SQL limit
 statement, so that the archives that get_archives produces can be manually
 broken down in smaller pieces.
