#32610: Pagination counts should use specific terminology, not "items"

 The pagination counts on every admin list page in the backend use a very
 ambiguous "item/items" for the counts above and below the list. This works
 for some types of content, but when you're viewing content such as users
 the term "items" is very disconnected from the type of data that is shown.
 It ends up being very out of line with the specific nature of each of the
 listing screens

 I propose that we look for the kind of content that is shown on the
 particular page and use the plural label instead of the ambiguous "item".
 Finding the proper label could be achieved using get_post_type_labels,
 get_taxonomy_labels, and even the already existing _args['plural'] on
 applicable screens. The data needed for this looks to already exist in the
 class for every page except for plugins.

 The specific line that prints "item" is currently on line 694 of wp-
 admin->includes->class-wp-list-table.php in trunk within the pagination()
