  PostgreSQL has LIMIT... it's a SQL standard.  And I don't really see
  why you would need SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS unless you where going to
  show the total number of pages.  For simple Next/Previous paging
  you just keep going until you fall off the end. 

  If you need to get a count you can just do a count() on a particular
  column without the LIMIT and get a total.
