One of the very early versions of Forrest had pagination enabled, 
somehow, it was later turned off because of problems. I can'r remember 
exactly how it was implemented or why it was turned off.

A detailed search of the archives may turn somehitng up. My quick search 
unearthed this thread [1] which seems to discuss how to use the 
paginator in Forrest.

Don't be put off by the fact the first mail starts with the tutorial now 
in Cocoon docs, there is some forrest specific stuff at the end. Also, 
bear in mind this is three years ago now so positions of files may well 
have changed, the paginator may have been enhanced, even the function of 
files may have changed. We can help you get up to date on the dev list.
