 If you have 23 comments pending approval, and you approve 3 of them, the
 pagination links should reflect the fact that there is now only 1 page
 worth of comments.

 Attached keeps track of how many total comments there are (for that
 comment view: all, pending, approved...) and keeps the displayed total and
 displayed page links up to date.

 This also keeps the total and the pagination links up to date in the event
 of new comments coming in.


  1. When a comment is removed, the total decrements: no DB access needed.
  2. Comment totals are calculated explicitly from the DB when:
     1. The browser thinks the total number of pages is about to change.
     2. Randomly at a frequency of {{{1/$per_page}}}.
  The first time to reset the total and page links to the real value, the
 second time to keep everyone honest.
  3. All AJAX data is sent back to the browser with a timestamp, so the JS
 can decide if the new total is more or less up to date than what it
