 ->Count essentially changes the SQL query from:

	select field.field.field from (etc)
	select count(id) from (etc)

If a Limit statement is applied (which is how the 50 per page stuff does),
count is faithfully reporting how many rows would be returned ;)

Depending on your installation, I'd be rather careful (repeating rather
broad searches just to get a count on each new page is ugly), however
storing the total results in the %session, and checking that you haven't
already gotten a total result for the current search would be nifty.
