Forum OpenACS Q&A: ad_table/ad_dimensional and template::paginator

Is it at all possible to use these 2 together?  I have a fairly big data set (say, a list of accounts) that I want to be able to filter/sort using ad_table and ad_dimensional API, but would also like to restrict a number of rows returned per page the way paginator does.  Has anyone had a similar need/solution to it?  Anything short of custom code to watch where one is within a selected data set?
