Heavy use of this thunk in 5 different places, so it seems like a good candidate to insert this logic

— Is that a 1 or an L?

— TemplDoc

— L, I see

— Stands for "template document", a DocumentFragment

— Hyper speed, good for templating

— If conf.paged is true, then what the ssystem should do is insert multiple templates into the destination node, using an array to populate them like this:

{prop: "hello world"},
{prop: "hello sunshine"},
{prop: "hello baby"},
{prop: "hello sweetie"},

— So if conf.elemPerPage is set to 4, then we get 4 templates filled out in that order, with template 2 having "hello sunshine" etc...

— Normally, without conf.paged, you just give the loader a single object like one of those

— I see

— Go larger
