    """
    Based on Django's default paginator, it adds "Digg-style" page ranges
    with a leading block of pages, an optional middle block, and another
    block at the end of the page range. They are available as attributes
    on the page:

    {# with: page = digg_paginator.page(1) #}
    {% for num in page.leading_range %} ...
    {% for num in page.main_range %} ...
    {% for num in page.trailing_range %} ...

    Additionally, ``page_range`` contains a nun-numeric ``False`` element
    for every transition between two ranges.

    {% for num in page.page_range %}
        {% if not num %} ...  {# literally output dots #}
        {% else %}{{ num }}
        {% endif %}
    {% endfor %}

    Additional arguments passed to the constructor allow customization of
    how those bocks are constructed:

    body=5, tail=2

    [1] 2 3 4 5 ... 91 92
    |_________|     |___|
    body            tail
              |_____|
              margin

    body=5, tail=2, padding=2

    1 2 ... 6 7 [8] 9 10 ... 91 92
            |_|     |__|
             ^padding^
    |_|     |__________|     |___|
    tail    body             tail

    ``margin`` is the minimum number of pages required between two ranges; if
    there are less, they are combined into one.

    When ``align_left`` is set to ``True``, the paginator operates in a
    special mode that always skips the right tail, e.g. does not display the
    end block unless necessary. This is useful for situations in which the
    exact number of items/pages is not actually known.
