#302 Indicator to show that history list spans multiple pages


Looking at the History list for an article I have no way to
know whether to navigate to the next page or not.
Usually in discussion forums having multitudes of lists we
have an indicator like messages 20-40 of 250, and then
we have "next 20" or "previous 20" enabled or disabled
according to our position.

In the history list, all the numbers links and the "next"
links are always enabled, even if there is no history listing
in the next page. While it may require a lot of
programming to provide the feature of exact numbers as
mentioned above, it'll help if one indicator is provided.

For histories that span more than a page, the "last" link in
the last line should be enabled. For histories that belong
to only one page, the "last" link should be disabled.
(Currently the link is disabled in all cases)

Enabling of the "last" link in the last line would decide if
the history spans multiple pages or not.

    Under the hood, this is related to RFE#668443, which see.

    It seems like wfViewNextPrev() could use an overhaul here. It should probably take a parameter giving the total number of results, and enable/disable links based on that count.
