A couple themers have told me that the pagers do not belong in the last
row of tables. Here is a big patch to move them all.

This is a good idea because tables should only contain related data.
Pagers are not part of the data set and therefore belong *outside* the

Additionally, if marked up correctly with thead and tfoot, printing the
page will result in headers and footers being repeated on each page.
With the footer, this feature would be very confusing.

There may be accessibility issues as well related to the non-semantic
placement of the pager, but I'm not an expert on such issues.
