How about having a global setting in q=admin/settings but letting registered
users override it with a user profile setting? Per-module is probably not
needed, because the page size won't change depending on which module you're
in. On the other hand, nothing I've proposed would preclude a module adding
its own per-module setting if it wanted to, and that module could rely on 
the system- or user-chosen value as defaults.
