Splits up a list and makes it a pager scroller thingy

This is a jQuery plugin for Foswiki that implements a widget to handle long lists. It therefore splits the list and adds a pager so that it takes less screen estate overall to display all list elements. This kind of list pager comes in handy when displaying lots of navigation elements in a sidebar navigation.
