Also, there's the plan to IoC-ify the Pager, which would also affect the basic API. I just wonder if the need for convenience methods might want to be re-visited after some of this work, just to double-check just what the right path should be.

It's going to be awhile still before we get to replacing the existing Pager with a newer version that supports IoC. In the meantime, our approach to the Pager is to support the one we've got, fix bugs in it, and try to incrementally make it easier to use. That's the right path, in my mind.

We've generally moved away from the use of convenience methods for most components except the Reorderer. It seems to me that the best use for these convenience methods is when there is no single set of "good defaults." 
So can you elaborate on what sorts of conveniences a user might need when they're invoking a Pager?
