Yes, I though of that, but the pager could show lots of things and not only help.
like when using %pycat.

If you look at 

L 148 :    pager_body.append(this.pager_element.children())

the part : this.pager_element.children()
give you the current content of the pager. 
you can play around with regexp and try to extract the function/object name.

then just change this
                $('<title>').text("Your text")

To the text you want. 

If you have any ideas, feel free to open a PR.
