Caching the pager won't work, I think. I would cache the array  
returned by $rs->all and use directly Data::Page (which is used  
internally by DBIx::Class IIRC). Be careful though, $rs->all will  
fetch all data from the DB for your query, so you might want to a)  
limit the total number of rows returned and b) clean this data up at  
some point.

Hope that helps,
