def paginate(parser, token):
        {% paginate objects %}
    After this call, in the template context the *objects* variable is replaced
    with only the objects of the current page.
    You can also mantain your *objects* original variable (commonly a queryset)
    and add to context another name referring to objects of the current page, 
        {% paginate objects as page_objects %}
    The number of paginated object is taken from settings, but you can
    override the default, e.g.::
        {% paginate 20 objects %}
    Of course you can mix it all::
        {% paginate 20 objects as paginated_objects %}
    You must use this tag before calling the {% show_more %} one.
