File links need "paging" (next 500 type links)

Description:
It would appear that the File links section on the Image: namespace only show up to 500 links (in no
particular order), this can be a little troublesome with images that are used a lot (for example in stub
templates).

Look for example on the image in the URL field in this report. It's used in about 6 stub templates, but
looking at it's file links section you can't say wich ones because none of the templates show up among
the visible file links.

So I would suggest adding a paging scheme, simmilar to how categories work. That way you could browse
though multiple pages worth of file links easily (or if that's inpractical for caching reasons, add a new
specialpage to enumerate file links for a particular file).

I support this proposal. It is very difficult to fix ghost links or track down a
specific file if you cannot list all the files linked to an image.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
