hello all.

i agree with ISSUE-33 that pagination should be functionality that can be
reused. maybe it's helpful to look at how it's done elsewhere:

- rfc4287 is atom, the "container format". it defines what a container
looks like, what entries look like, and thus mostly defines the data model
of containers and entries.

- rfc5023 is atompub. it defines the interactions for creating new entries
i have recently described in longish emails.

- rfc5005 is feed paging and describes link relations that can be used in
*any resource* (that works within the framework of rfc5988) to expose
links to first, next, previous, and last pages.

this means it's perfectly fine to implement atompub without paging, but it
probably would not be very helpful to do so.
