A way to return how many items there's in a collection

A feature for us to print the number of items in a collection, wherever we want in a collection list, a collection page, or static page.

It could be useful to design bubbles or indicators showing how many items exist for a given list. It's more precise than for a collection. It would be affected by the limitations of a list.

For example a list of 3 first blog posts filtered to category: international, with an indicator in the title of the list showing how many items that list returns when you click a "Show all" link.

I don't fully envision how this would work because this indicator would have to be outside of the list, actually, along with the title of the list. It's not a dynamic data per se, rather a metric from the CMS.

It goes along the pagination feature and maybe the manual sorting of a collection:

    At first, Gina wasn't really concerned about Regina De Luca's disapproval. After all, who was David going to listen to, an old woman who still looked at the world as if it was the nineteen thirties, or the babe sharing his bed who was fucking his brains out every night? In fact, it was only last night that, in anticipation of her imminent betrothal, she made one of his most cherished fantasies come true by letting him fuck her in the ass. There was no way he was going to give her up, or at least so she believed.


    But Gina had seriously underestimated how much sway the elder Mrs. De Luca had over David, especially since the old lady still controlled much of La Familia De Luca's inherited wealth and had already disinherited one grandson after he'd exhibited what she considered an unnatural interest in other young men. Not only would there turn out to be no proposal, but in less than a week Gina found herself back in her parents' home out in the far end of Queens. A move that traded a two-stop commute with one that was not only an hour longer, but also required transferring to a city bus for the last third of it -- a fact now uppermost in her mind, as it was doubtful that she would make it to the transfer point before the buses stopped running.

    Not being able to afford Manhattan rents, many of the employees still at the office also lived in the outer boroughs, which put a number of them in the same quandary as Gina. The big difference, however, was that they had been here before and knew how to make the best of it.
