Certainly this is much better as a global var!
It could be set to null for no error message, or internationalized,
or customised in different styles etc.

I am not sure though if it could not be classed as a superfluous
feature, as it is a non-critical error.

I am wondering about another add-on template variable to be built into
FPLTemplateFormat alongside {$$PageCount}, {$$GroupCount} and
If chunks of a pagelist are displayed, {$$PageCount} will always
start at 1 and go up to the number of items shown ($count value).
To get a continuous index number one needs another var, perhaps call
it {$$IndexCount}.
This is initialized as
     $indexcount = $opt['start']-1;
and then incrementally increased like $pagecount in the page loop.

An index number like this could be done in the template with use of a
'sum' markup expression, summing the {$$start} and the {$$PageCount},
but it would be smarter done within the FPLTemplateFormat
