Break truncated responses into chunks so you can read it all

Bug Description

Currently if a response is too long it is truncated and an ellipse is appended. This leaves no way to read the truncated part of the message.

How about instead truncating and appending "[1 of 3]" and then letting the user say "gdefine kitsune %2" to get the second part? Would need to add a preprocessor to match and strip the "%2" and modifying the truncate postprocessor. Also need to watch out that the syntax doesn't clash with plugins (which is why I didn't choose #2, which literal uses).

That's all very well when we have the complete data, but for DB queries etc, calculating a start point gets complex

You don't know how long items are, so you don't know where page 3 starts.
