Paginator could detect if the object_list is a QuerySet or a list

If the Paginator is accidentally used to count a large QuerySet (instead of a QuerySetPaginator), the generated SQL request could be inefficient (all content will be retrieved just to make len on it). Why don't we automatically detect if object_list has a count attribute? The paginator API will be simpler and it will be more difficult to introduce performance issues.
def _get_count(self): if self._count is None: if hasattr(self.object_list, 'count'): self._count = self.object_list.count() else: self._count = len(self.object_list) return self._count count = property(_get_count)
And by the way the Paginator is far way to simple for my needs so I have sub class it. But I can't derivate from both QuerySetPaginator and Paginator. It's antoher reason why I think it's not a good idea to have 2 classes.
